This is a tasty snack that will give you a crunch and a very enjoyable roasted spice flavor. Easy as 1-2-3 to make and very low in sodium. Most snacks like potato chips or corn chips come with a load of calories and salt which stays with you for hours. It makes your body retain water as well as keeps you hungry instead of satisfying you. Using either soaked peas / beans overnight or cooked from a can, (low sodium of course), you will love how fast you can be snacking. So enjoy and crunch away.
