  4. Sprinkle with garlic and onion powder, salt, and cayenne. Roll them around until evenly coated.
  5. Roast for 20 minutes and then shake the pan gently to roll the chickpeas around. Roast for 10-15 minutes more, until golden and lightly charred (be sure to keep an eye on them so they don’t burn).
