Ingredients

For the seasoning:

  • 1/4 Cup powdered ranch dressing mix
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons powdered white Cheddar cheese
  • 2 Teaspoons paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of turmeric

For the chickpeas:

  • 2 (15-ounce) cans of chickpeas
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

For the seasoning:

Combine all the ingredients in a spice grinder or coffee grinder. Pulse for 15 to 20 seconds, or until the powders are completely combined. Set aside.

For the chickpeas:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Drain and rinse the chickpeas well in a colander. Then, dry them well with paper towels or in a salad spinner. Coat the chickpeas in olive oil and season with the salt. Spread the chickpeas out onto a parchment lined sheet pan in one layer. Bake the chickpeas for 30 minutes in the preheated oven.

After the 30 minutes is up, turn off the oven, but leave the chickpeas in the oven for an additional hour to continue to dehydrate and crisp. Cool the chickpeas completely before tossing with the cool ranch seasoning. Store the Roasted Cool Ranch Chickpeas in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
