Crispy beans

A nice and healthy finger food

One day I decided that I wanted to eat some nice finger food which was also healthy. However, I did not have much energy to cook any elaborate dish. Tough challenge to find a solution that accommodated all my wishes, but after browsing a bit on the internet I found the right recipe. In case you need to prepare finger food for an aperitivo or a party and you do not have enough energy to prepare elaborated snacks, I highly recommend this recipe.


  • 1 can of chickpeas/beans
  • 2 Tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp of flour
  • 1 Tbsp of Salt
  • 1 Tbsp of Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp of Curry
  • 1 Tbsp of Sweet paprika


  1. The first step is to take the chickpeas/beans and put them in a colander so that you can remove the water. Leave the beans under the running water for a few second and make sure to wash away their sauce. Leave them in the colander for at 30 least minutes. After the time passed, you can place them on a kitchen paper and dry them.
  2. Pre-heat the oven at 160° and then proceed with seasoning the chickpeas/beans.
  3. At this point you can put the chickpeas/beans into a bowl and pour flour, salt, pepper, curry and sweet paprika.
  4. Now place a foil of baking paper on the baking tray and put the chickpeas/beans inside. Pour onto them the two tablespoons of olive oil.
  5. Put the baking tray in the oven and let it cook for 30 minutes. They should reach a crispy consistency.
  6. You can now serve them with some curry yogurt sauce or any other sauce you like or have in the fridge. Enjoy!


  • As for now, I tried this recipe with both chickpeas and beans. They both turned out really good. You can use any spice you like. One time, I used the thyme as a third spice.
