  • 1 400 g tin chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp onion granules
  • ½ tsp freshly ground sea salt
  • pinch of freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tsp maple syrup


  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas in a sieve.
  • Pour onto a plate covered with kitchen paper and rub thoroughly dry with more kitchen paper.
  • Place the chickpeas in the ActiFry and set timer for 10 minutes, removing and shaking the pan half way through.
  • Add the sesame oil, smoked paprika, onion powder, sea salt and pepper and set timer for 8 minutes, removing and shaking pan half way through.
  • Finally drizzle the maple syrup over the chickpeas and set timer for 4 minutes, removing and shaking pan half way through.
  • Chickpeas should be crispy on the outside and slightly soft on the inside, continue cooking if necessary until ready.
  • Pour onto a plate and allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.


Timings based on a Tefal ActiFry Express, other models will require longer cooking time. The chickpeas will clump together so shaking the pan is vital to get an even roast.
