Orange Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

Orange Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

I’ve been making and giving food gifts from the kitchen for years. When David and I were first married, I did so mostly because it was frugal. We didn’t have much money for buying gifts for extended family and friends, so I would give gifts that I could bake – breads, cookies, candies — even savory items from time to time. Making a loaf of banana bread didn’t cost much, but it always seem to make people happy.

This week for #SundaySupper, our theme is Gifts from the Kitchen, hosted by Susan of The Wimpy Vegetarian.

My contribution is Orange Spiced Roasted Chickpeas. They are chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) which are roasted in the oven until crispy. They are tossed with orange marmalade, which has been mixed with some cinnamon and nutmeg. Then, they are popped back in the oven for finishing. The end result is a crispy, crunchy, orange flavored snack.

For gift giving, put them in a reusable container or a mason jar. I put mine in a mason jar, added a handwritten tag and some ribbon. Super easy. Two cans of chickpeas are enough to fill a pint sized jar. (my tag is a Martha Stewart ElastiNote tags from Staples…love ‘em)

  24. Love, love,love this recipe and the orange marmalade sounds really good with the chickpeas!!!Will be trying this for sure :)

  25. Homemade food gifts are simply the best. I have always made my gifts as well and even though it is often driven by the fact that buying so many gifts can be expensive and holiday shopping is just stressful, I don’t feel at all like I’m settling. I love spending time making something that I think someone will love.

    … and usually I make sweet things but these chickpeas look so delicious I might have to shake things up and move towards a more savory-snack direction!

  26. I’ve been meaning to roast some chickpeas ever since I saw my first recipe a few months ago! Your version sounds fantastic…what a perfect gift!
