Roasted Chickpeas, Red Potatoes, and Asparagus

I did the thing I’ve been trying NOT to do this summer.

I heated up the oven.

I’ve avoided it pretty well lately but I just couldn’t resist cranking it up to 400 for the bundle of asparagus in my fridge. We don’t have a grill and I didn’t feel like digging around the basement for my George Foreman so I turned to the oven. And I figured, if I’m going to heat up the oven then I should make it worth my while. I should roast up as much as I can. And that’s what I did.

Roasted Chickpeas, Red Potatoes, and Asparagus
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: Vegetarian
Serves: 3
  • 1 15oz can of chickpeas
  • 3 medium sized red potatoes
  • 1 pound of asparagus
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 lemon
  • Sea salt & pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. Rinse and drain the chickpeas.
  3. Toss with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and spread onto a baking sheet.
  4. Wash and chop the red potatoes into 1" quarter slices. (So I cut mine into quarters and then chopped into 1 inch pieces.)
  5. Toss those in 1 tbsp of olive oil and spread onto a baking sheet. Make sure they're in a single layer.
  6. Put the chickpeas and potatoes in the oven once it's preheated. (They need more time to cook than the asparagus.)
  7. Wash the asparagus and snap off the ends.
  8. Then you can toss them in the last tablespoon of olive oil OR you can use a spray olive oil if you have one. It's a little easier to coat it that way.
  9. Again, spread into a single layer on a baking sheet.
  10. Once the chickpeas and potatoes have been cooking for about 15 minutes, put the asparagus in the oven as well.
  11. At that point, everything will need about 20 minutes. You'll want to turn things over every 5-10 minutes. (You'll need to turn it every 5 minutes if your oven is too small for both trays to go side by side.)
  12. Once the veggies are crisp and brown, take them out of the oven.
  13. Sprinkle fresh dill over all the veggies (and chickpeas) and then squeeze a lemon over everything.
  14. Salt & pepper to taste! (It'll probably need about 1 tsp of salt!)


roasted chickpeas with asparagus

I was so happy with how this came out! It was so simple and I loved the flavor of the fresh dill. Alex requested that we have this again soon, so I’m sure I’ll be making this again! It was worth turning the oven on.

roasted chickpeas and potatoesThe nice thing about this dish is, it’s vegan and gluten free so it’s pretty allergen friendly! Plus, you could easily swap in a few other veggies that you have laying around. Next time I might try it with green beans! We enjoyed this out on our deck and it was the perfect dish for a summer night.

This dish also makes me really want to grow and herb garden. Fresh herbs just taste so much better! Any herb garden tips for me?

Do you use your oven in the summertime?

  6. There are certain dishes worth turning the oven on – this dish would be one of those for me, too! Worth it for all that fresh and delicious flavors from the roasted chickpeas, asparagus and the fresh dill!

  7. This looks like it was worth turning on the oven for! I love that you added chickpeas. It’s like a one pan meal!

  8. Love the addition of roasted chickpeas. Makes for more great textures! I use my oven in the summer, but only because I live in San Francisco. It’s cold here in the summertime! Although yesterday was 90…

    I’d love it if you would come and share on Try A Bite Tuesday Link Party that’s happening over at Caleigh’s Kitchen!

    Omg this looks all sorts of deliciousness!!! So need to give this a try!

  20. MMMM what a yummy combo! I hear ya its too hot for oven but today a pizza was needed!

  21. eliz frank says:

    What a tasty little dish to make on the spur of the moment. I like chickpeas and potatoes and might give this a try. Yum! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. funny you should mention about the oven…there are a few staples we need the oven for, including my son’s allergy friendly chicken nuggets. But our oven went kaputz recently, so am now going without for a month or so to save for a new one.

    • Oh no! I did just try roasting chickpeas on the stove top and it ended up being a bit more like frying them but it worked pretty well!

  23. I use the oven all the time even when it’s 90. I just love roasted sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts. At least this summer I have better AC. Half the time I leave the AC off though as I just like it warm anyway. I love how simple this meal is.
