Cheezy Roasted Chickpeas

These roasted chickpeas get their yellow color (and good flavor!) from tumeric and nutritional yeast.  Hands-on time is just five minutes to satisfy your salty, crunchy cravings with a healthy alternative!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1.5 tsp oil (I use olive or sunflower)
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast


  1. Preheat the oven to 425.  In a bowl, mix together the chickpeas, oil, turmeric, salt, and nutritional yeast. 

  2. Spread onto a baking sheet (I cover the sheet with parchment paper) and cook for 35 minutes, stirring halfway through.  (Note: try to keep the chickpeas in a single layer to cook evenly.)  Eat!

Recipe Notes

If you don't like nutritional yeast or don't have it handy, you can use regular grated parmesan cheese.  Just leave it out when you mix up the chickpeas, and then sprinkle it on top during the last 5-8 minutes of roasting.
