Healthy Snack-Salt and Vinegar Chickpeas

Well, for once I have decided to post something healthy with this salt and vinegar chickpea recipe.  This is makes a great alternative to fried snacks such as salt and vinegar chips.  I have always loved salt and vinegar flavoured anything- a childhood favourite was a bucket of chips with so much vinegar there was literally a swimming pool of it at the bottom of the bucket when I finished.  I didn’t even like chips without vinegar!

These little gems are very easy and make a slightly more gourmet party snack that is high in protein and has a little more nutritional value than a packet of crisps.  Give them a go!

Salt and Vinegar Chickpeas

1 can or jar of cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed

About 2 cups of white vinegar (or enough to cover the chickpeas in a saucepan)

Drizzle of olive oil

1/2 tsp salt.

1.Preheat oven to 180 degrees

2. Cover chickpeas with vinegar in a saucepan and bring to the boil over a medium heat

3.  Leave boiling for about 10 minutes.

4. Remove from heat and drain

5.  Spread over a pyrex baking dish in single layer and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle salt.

6.  Bake for about 20 minutes, until slightly crispy.
