    Recipe Tips:

    The spices can be anything you like and as much or as little. Rosemary, a little salt and pepper are lovely. Add some ginger, red chili flakes, salt and sesame seeds for an Asian twist. Garlic and herbs are wonderful too — the possibilities are endless!

    Chickpeas are best if eaten the same day they're roasted as they will soften with time.
