It’s funny, before I went vegan, cheese and onion crisps were my least favourite flavour. I think it was probably my as yet unknown dairy intolerance making itself known! Now, I like vegan cheese and onion flavoured things. For the “packaging free” day of VeganMoFo I made cheese and onion chickpeas – might sound a little odd, but trust me, they’re so good (and a lot easier than making your own potato crisps).
Roasting chickpeas is a great way to create an easy and tasty snack at home! You can flavour them in so many different ways, you’ll never get bored.
