All this week we've been talking about travel snacks here on The Kitchn. An ideal travel snack is portable, versatile, configurable, and heat-resistant. (Unfortunately that last factor rules out chocolate as a viable option.) You know what meets all those criteria in spades, though? The chickpea! Roast 'em, dry 'em, shake 'em all up. You've just found your new travel buddy.
I've been pretty unimaginative in roasted chickpea creations. I typically go with the classic rosemary and thyme mix.
However, after just biting into a handful of the wasabi variety — which, by the way, is not recommended and very close to a cinnamon challenge — I realized all the potential there is for imparting new and bold flavors. Here are some other flavor combinations I'll be looking to try out next.
Do you have a favorite roasted chickpea seasoning?
