These baked salt and pepper chickpeas are a great alternative to peanuts. Not only are they tasty, but a superb healthy snack.
Heat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, 180°C fan.
Pat the chickpeas as dry as you can with kitchen paper or a tea towel.
In a bowl mix the chickpeas oil and crushed peppercorns to coat well. Spread out on a large baking sheet covered with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss through the salt, then leave to cool.
