Author Brandon Matzek


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated or minced
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas (prepared from dry)
  • Crushed red chile flakes, to taste
  • Kosher salt

Toasted sesame seeds, for topping


  1. Preheat an oven to 400°F. Add olive oil, soy sauce, fish sauce, maple syrup and garlic to a medium bowl, whisking to combine. Add the chickpeas and toss to evenly coat. Turn out chickpeas (and any liquid) on to a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, tossing occasionally, until crispy and golden on the outside and creamy within (about 30 - 35 minutes). Season to taste with salt, and finished with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds.
