Salt and Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas

Salt and Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas


I remember back in the days when I was a vegetarian, I would eat chickpeas all the time. I would eat chickpea salad wraps for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Going out to the store, I would but a huge, overloaded bag of chickpeas that could feed an army and then some. But for some reason, after I started eating meat, I stopped my whole chickpea craze.

Well people, it's coming back!



Salt and Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas


I have been seeing recipe after recipe for roasted chickpeas that made me drool. I needed to make some of my own! That is when I saw a recipe for salt and vinegar chickpeas that I thought: This is the one.


Salt and Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas


And it really was the one. But not the one in the sense that I would take it on long walks on the beach. This batch barely lasted 15 minutes in my house, it was so good. I needed to swat people away with my spatula so that I can take these pictures.

So if you're craving some salt and vinegar chips (like I do 89% of the day) but want something healthier, here's your solution!

  15. I've never gone off chickpeas so these sound excellent - when I was little my favourite crisps were salt and vinegar but I rarely have them now - this might be just the trip down memory late I need - and a spatula to swat away those who want to eat them all :-)
