Crunchy Chickpea Snacks

Recipe score:

Alas – a crunchy snack that isn’t trail mix (no hate on trail mix though!) But seriously, chickpeas are a wicked source of protein and fibre – a perfect combo to keep fuelled on outdoor adventures. 

Prep Time: < 5 mins + 12 hours marinating

Cooking Method: dehydrating

Cooking Time: ~ 6 hours

Yield: 2

General Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked or canned chickpeas (half of a 540ml can), drained
  • ~1/4 cup+ liquid (sauces, vinegars, water, etc.)
  • Seasonings

(see my favourite seasonings below)

Directions:

  1. Cook chickpeas (or drain and rinse from a can).
  2. In a container, combine liquid with spices and stir well to combine. 
  3. Add in chickpeas and let marinate for 12+ hours.
  4. Drain excess liquid from container and disperse chickpeas onto dehydrating trays.
