These salty & crunchy spicy roasted chickpeas are packed with flavour and protein!

Make them as a healthy (and vegan!) alternative to potato chips or salad croutons. This recipe is so quick and easy, you’ll be making up a batch of these bad boys more often than you’d like to admit.

Now I’ve gone for a spicy masala seasoning but feel free to let your taste combos run wild! Think a delicious peri-peri spice, sweet chutney and so many more!
