Easy Salt & Vinegar Roasted Chick Peas


Hello friends!

My revived Salt & Vinegar obsession lives on! I am so excited to tell you about this next recipe tonight. Unfortunately, it is not a clue for my overseas trip in September (didn’t have time to make it), but it is a great recipe regardless.


Easy Salt & Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas

Adapted from Homemade Salt & vinegar Chips and Green Beans.


  • 1.5-2 cups cooked chickpeas (one 15-oz can), drained and rinsed*
  • 2.5-4 cups white vinegar
  • 1/2-1 tsp fine grain sea salt, to taste
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil



1. Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.

2. Add chickpeas into pot and cover with vinegar. Add a dash of sea salt. Open a window and turn on range hood fan to air out the soon-to-be potent vinegar smell. <– you were warned!

3. Bring to a boil and then remove from heat. Let sit in pot for 15-20 minutes, uncovered.

4. Preheat oven to 400F. Carefully drain chickpeas in a strainer and discard vinegar. Place chickpeas on lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and sea salt. Massage with fingers until fully coated.

5. Roast for 25-35 minutes, stirring once half way through. Keep a careful eye on them after 20 minutes of cooking to ensure they don’t burn. Enjoy as a high protein snack or as a side to a lunch or dinner. Cool on pan for 5 minutes. They will crisp up as they cool.

*Note: I assume you could also use dry chickpeas and cook them in vinegar from scratch. Also note: When I brought the cooked chickpeas to a boil, some of the peas split open and some of the skins came off. Not to worry if this happens-it will turn out regardless!


I loved these! The salt & vinegar taste was amazing and really came through.


Crunchy, crispy. Divine.

High in protein to boot!


In the OSG recipe vault!

I had the S & V chickpeas along with some BBQ’d veggies…


So much green! Eric used his olive oil + S & P + wrap in tin foil BBQ trick again.


Food baby ensued. ;)

Operation Beautiful Book Release


Caitlin’s long-awaited Operation Beautiful book is officially released today in stores! Caitlin will also be on The Today Show this Thursday at 8:30am. Be sure to tune in if you can.

ob_2_small2This Friday, I will be the last stop on Caitlin’s Virtual Book Tour.

I will be talking about a body-image topic that is very near and dear to my heart: Happy Weights. How do we come to terms with where our bodies are happiest? How do we know when we are there? How do we learn to love our body the way it was meant to be? How do we stop fighting against our Happy Weight? I have LOTS to say about this topic!

I will be talking about all of these questions on Friday, so stay tuned for a fun discussion and book giveaway!

I have more work to take care of tonight. I’m hoping to end the evening with our favourite new show- Lie To Me! Eric and I are HOOKED. We are only 3 episodes from being caught up to this current season. It is basically my ideal show- psychology research + gripping plots + great cast. We can’t get enough! It gets better with each episode.

Oh, I just realized I forgot to give you a clue for where I am going in September…

Au revoir, chick P!

Oops, forgot to comment–I LOVE France…I am jealous! I got to do a study abroad while I was in college, and it was one of the best experiences of my life–I had my first boyfriend there, my first kiss…lol, it was all very dreamy.

And I love Lie to Me! I’m really happy to see Max Martini on there right now (Jillian ((is that her name??))’s boyfriend.) I loved him in The Unit–he’s just eye candy for me.

I can’t wait to try this recipe. It looks so yummy and I got hooked on chick peas when I was pregnant with my daughter (the only things I was able to stomach).

I can’t wait to pick up Caitlin’s book, but I thought it wasn’t released in Canada until next week, I’ll be checking out the store tomorrow for sure :).

Have a wonderful time in France.

I just love reading your blog and I’m on here everyday checking out what you created. :)

Ack … I cannot wait to try that chickpea recipe! You rock, Angela!


Lizzie August 3, 2010


Where are you going in France?? You will have a wonderful time, especially that time of year. We went a couple of years ago and it was very fun (and that was just the food!).


Lauren August 3, 2010

I cooked your salt and vinegar potato chips today, and they were totally delicious, but my house smells like a big pickle now. LOL!


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 3, 2010



Jessica @ How Sweet It Is August 3, 2010

Yum! Love salt and vinegar!


Heather (Heather's Dish) August 3, 2010

please tell me you’re going to france. and please take me with you….i promise to lose enough weight to fit in your suitcase and then gain it all back with French pastries :)


Run Sarah August 3, 2010

Those look awesome! Hmm, perhaps you are going to Quebec?


Kaley August 3, 2010

Well, I suppose it’s likely you’re going to France, but other people besides French people speak French! Like: Belgians or Swiss. So, you could definitely be heading to the land of chocolate and cheese if you ask me.


Marathon Bound Gal aka Grace August 3, 2010

Ahhhh France’, a country I’d like to visit on one of our stops in Europe for next year’s vacation. Wow, salt and vinegar craze on the rise….love it! Those chickpeas sound like a good recovery snack after a long run w/lots of sweating. Good salt replacement!


Marie August 3, 2010

Yum the chickpeas look great! Usually when I bake chickpeas I coat them in olive oil, salt, and cumin. So good! Can’t wait to this s & v recipe. And perhaps France? If so, that’s so fun! A friend of mine is going there in November. Ahh, if only I could go, too! :D


Casey Thomas August 3, 2010

Yum, those green veggies look amazing!

Congrats to Caitlin on the book!



Shanna, Like Banana August 3, 2010

And yet another great recipe. My hubby loves salt and vinegar chips and would adore these I’m sure!

If you are going to France and have never been, I may have a suggestion or two ;)


Ashley August 3, 2010

France!! Amazing! Those chickpeas seriously look soooo delicious. I can’t imagine how busy you are making all of those bars. Congrats with your success though! Really reallllly wish we lived closer…it would be fun doing it together ;)


Crystal August 3, 2010

France?? Or some other French speaking place? ;) Travelling is so fun! Why are you going, if I may ask?

I had chickpeas for dinner tonight, too! But mine were the stars in a curry dish. :)
