What Is “Everything Bagel”?

No doubt, you’ve probably heard of the seasoning mix from Trader Joe’s called, “Everything But The Bagel”. It’s a mixture of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic, onion, and salt. It’s quite delicious in many recipes, including recipes like this one. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby, you can order it from Amazon, or you can make your own with this recipe here.

What’s The Difference Between Garbanzo Beans And Chickpeas?

Nothing. Both names refer to the same bean. The reason we have two names for them has to do with two different languages. Namely, Latin and Spanish. Each language had its own words for these beans, and both have trickled down through the ages.

Are Chickpeas Fattening?

No! On the contrary! They, as well as most beans, are very nutritious and healthy to eat. That being said, it depends on what you add to them in cooking and how much you eat of them. You could get fat eating just salads if you tried hard enough. But speaking generally about what people refer to when they ask this question, you are pretty safe eating chickpeas.

“The USDA Economic Research Service estimates that only 14% of Americans consume dried beans on a semi-regular basis (note: this number does not account for canned beans).”

Do You Need To Refrigerate Roasted Chickpeas?

There are different approaches to this. Some people say no, because keeping them on the counter helps keep them crispy. However, as with most foods, eventually, they will go bad. And as with most foods, keeping them in the fridge helps lengthen their lifespan.

Honestly, they never last long enough around here for me to store them in the fridge. But if I made a huge batch that I couldn’t eat quickly, then yes, I would store them in the fridge. I’d rather lose a tiny bit of crispiness than get sick.

Are Roasted Chickpeas Crunchy?

Yes, these are crunchy chickpeas!  Or at least, they should be. If they aren’t, you simply didn’t cook them long enough. That being said, I do recommend eating just a few at a time. Not a whole mouth full. They can be easy to choke on if you get too many. But it’s hard. It’s really hard not to stuff a whole bunch in your mouth. Ha! I just make sure to have a cup of water nearby just in case.

About The Ingredients

Cooked chickpeas – These can be cooked from dry, or you can use canned beans that you drain and rinse. Homecooked beans have way less sodium. If you choose to use canned, make sure there is no added sugar. If you cook them from dry, you can put the hot chickpeas directly into the mixing bowl. No need to cool them.

Everything But The Bagel Seasoning Mix – Found at Trader Joe’s. Or you can make your own with this easy recipe.

Garlic granules – Or garlic powder.

Salt – I used pink Himalayan salt, but use whatever you normally use in the kitchen. Sea salt works great too. If you are sensitive to salt, you can cut the amount in half or leave it out completely. These are easy to season with salt after cooking as well. But it does tend to stick to the beans better if it’s cooked with them in the air fryer.

Oil – I used liquid coconut oil, but you can use any light-flavored oil you prefer to cook with. Avocado oil is always a good choice. Olive oil or extra-virgin olive oil is not a good choice because it has such a low smoke point.

Setting an air fryer to 370 degrees F. and the timer to 12 minutes.

Set the air fryer to 370° F. and set the time to 12 minutes. If using an oven, set it to 300° F., and once hot, cook for 60 minutes, stirring frequently after the first 30 minutes. There is no need for parchment paper on the baking pans.

Checking the chickpeas after the first roasting.

Once the time is up, stir everything (or shake if using a basket air fryer), and return them to the air fryer to roast for another 8 minutes. You can repeat this in 2 to 5-minute increments until the beans are crispy if the second cooking phase isn’t enough. this will vary by air fryer.

How To Store Chickpeas?

Dry – Dry beans are best kept in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. I like to keep mine in canning jars.

Cooked – Store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Frozen – Store them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Roasted – Store them in an airtight container on the counter for up to 2 days, if you wish. Otherwise, store them in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, or freeze them for up to 6 months.
