Ingredients
FOR THE CHICKPEAS
1 (15-oz) can unsalted chickpeas, drained
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon kosher salt
FOR THE CHEETOS SEASONING
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon granulated garlic, (no salt added)
WINE PAIRING
Instructions
PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
DRAIN and rinse chickpeas thoroughly in a colander. Pat the chickpeas dry with clean paper towels and allow them to dry for five minutes.
PUT the chickpeas into a bowl with the olive oil and the sea salt. Toss until chickpeas are fully coated with both oil and salt. Pour the mixture out onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, tossing the chickpeas every 10 minutes or until just crispy.
MAKE your Cheetos seasoning while the chickpeas are in the oven. Whisk together the nutritional yeast, salt, and granulated garlic in a bowl. Set it aside.
REMOVE the chickpeas from the oven after they have become crispy. While they are still warm, toss them in the Cheetos seasoning until each chickpea is generously coated. Now they're ready for snacking!

RECIPE NOTES

As the chickpeas cool, they will lose their crispy texture and become more of a chewy snack. They are equally addictive this way, but the texture is different. If you want to enjoy your chickpeas crispy, enjoy them straight after tossing them in the seasoning!
