Welcome to part 3 of healthy, cost-conscious, portable recipes to try out. This week, here’s a delicious, healthy snack to munch on.

Salt & Vinegar Chickpeas

Ingredients

  • Chickpeas (2.5 cups canned or 1 cup dry)

  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil

Instructions

1. If the chickpeas are unsoaked, take the dry chickpeas and soak for 8 hours.

2. Boil the chickpeas with 1/2 cup of white vinegar until chickpeas are soft (10-15 minutes). To accelerate the process, I’ve used a pressure cooker instead.

5. Spread the chickpeas on a cookie sheet, and pour the mixture over them. Bake in the oven at 350F for 20 minutes. You may hear some of the chickpeas “pop”, these will be crisp!
