Another winner from The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Perfected Chickpea Salad Sandwiches! The best part about this recipe is how quick and easy it is to prepare – I think I spent more time mashing chickpeas than anything else – thus making it perfect for a weeknight meal in a pinch, particularly when you’ve had a hard day at work and need to smash some of the aggression out. The secret is in the dill – well, assuming you don’t hate the stuff – so don’t skimp!

Salt & Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas

This was my first time making roasted chickpeas EVER (!), and now I’m totally kicking myself for not trying them sooner. They’re really tasty and easy to make and – here’s the best part – NO SKINNING REQUIRED!

The Oh She Glows Cookbook contains two recipes for roasted chickpeas: a basic version and a salt and vinegar flavor, which you see here. The vinegar flavor comes from cooking and then soaking the chickpeas in white vinegar. (The salt, obviously, comes from salt.) Just the thing if you love salt and vinegar, which I totally do.

(The dogs? Not so much. Finnick and Mags have even been knows to turn up their noses at my salt and vinegar flavored popcorn. In their defense, I’m so heavy-handed with the spices that even Shane has been known to complain.)
