The idea of turning chickpeas into a snack is nothing new, but they still surprise me every time I try them. The result is halfway between a chip and a crouton, which means you can just as easily add them to a green salad as toss them as-is into a little baggie for a work snack. I also love adding them as a last-minute garnish to my pasta salads.

I’ve never used drugs, but eating these chickpeas makes me feel like I’m on the brink of extreme addiction.
