  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Ranch Chickpea Crisps

  • 3 TBS apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 4 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 4 TBS cashew parmesan (see links above)

Chili Lime Chickpea Crisps

  • 4 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 4 TBS lime juice
  • 2 tsp lime zest
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

Sweet Sesame Ginger

  • 4 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 2 TBS soy sauce
  • 1 TBS maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Instructions

  • Drain and rinse chickpeas, pat dry gently and thoroughly. Leave them to dry out on a towel for 20-60 minutes before baking.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • For the flavors you're making, combine all the spices in a small bowl and mix evenly.
  • Transfer chickpeas to a large bowl, toss with the spices of your chosen flavor.
  • Spread chickpeas evenly on a tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for 45 minutes, checking every 15 minutes and gently stirring for even baking/browning. Watch closely the last 10 minutes as they can easily burn.
  • Remove from the oven, and cool for 10-15 minutes before eating. For maximum crispiness, turn off oven, crack the door, and let them cool in the oven for 1 hour.

Notes

  • Starting with 8 cups of cooked chickpeas will allow you to make 2 different flavor combinations in one go. As each flavor combo requires 4 cups of chickpeas.
  • The spice amounts (salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, etc.) can all be tailored to your liking. These were just the amounts I used and liked.
