Chickpeas and sriracha taste amazing together. I originally wanted to douse these these chickpeas in sriracha and roast them but, last week, the igniter inside our oven broke, so I used my dehydrator to dry them out instead. After about 10 hours, they emerged from the dehydrator smelling and tasting fantastic, but the texture was still slightly too chewy. So I threw a handful of them into a saute pan with some oil which transformed them into a perfectly crispy and addictive chickpea. Store the dehydrated chickpeas in an airtight container (they’ll last about a week) and throw in handfuls of them into a saute pan as you’d like (they taste best straight out of the pan).
