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!
