  • 2 (15 oz) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp vegan Worcestershire
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp liquid smoke
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  1. In a shallow dish, whisk together the soy sauce, tomato paste, Worcestershire, maple syrup, liquid smoke, and pepper. Add chickpeas, making sure they are fully submerged, and marinate for at least 1 hour. Overnight is best. 

  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.

  3. Drain the chickpeas from the marinade, reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid. Blot the chickpeas dry then toss with olive oil and 1/4 cup reserved marinade. Spread evenly on the prepared baking sheet. 

  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to allow for even cooking. Bake until brown and crunchy. Watch them closely for the last few minutes to prevent burning.  

  5. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
