These delicious crispy, crunchy and spicy roasted chickpeas are a great way to use up those cans of chickpeas that have been lurking in the back of your cupboard. They're also a great alternative to crisps and popcorn when you're craving a savoury snack. These can be made with any mix of herbs and spices, play around with your favourite flavours. These are spicy, reduce the amount of pepper and cayenne if you’re not a spice fan.
