How to Make
Chickpeas are delicious roasted - the secret to crunchy chickpeas is to ensure they are completely dry before putting them in the oven.
I used half a tin of organic chickpeas (the rest went into a winter lamb stew). You can pick these up from any Woolworths or Coles. Spread onto a tray with a paper towel to dry.
Once the chickpeas are completely dry, pop them into a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and a good sprinkle of Seagreens Mineral Salt. Mix till they're entirely coated then spread them onto the tray, this time on greaseproof paper.
Bake for 30 minutes in a hot oven (200 degrees), giving the tray a little shake halfway through.
While they're cooking, prepare the rest of your nuts and seeds. Raid the pantry and use whatever you have - I used almonds, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds and chia. Add them to your bowl with a dash more olive oil and another sprinkle of Seagreens Mineral Salt.
At the 30-minute mark take your chickpeas out of the oven, spread your nuts and seeds onto the tray with them and pop them all back in for another 5 to 7 minutes.
