Salt & Vinegar Crispy Chickpeas

These little tasty morsels are super easy to make and great to snack on. The secret to getting them to crisp up and become crunchy, is thoroughly drying them beforehand. You can do this by leaving to air dry, or use a hair dryer for faster drying. Don’t hold the hair dryer too close though, if you do your chickpeas will become airborne. Chickpeas are of no use to you if they’re whizzing through the air
