These Chickpea fries are awesome finger food. They can be frozen for weeks, baked or grilled with or without oil or pan fried. I added ranch seasoning to the batter itself, so u can eat the fries as is without a dip, or use any of your favorite dips or sauces. Let me know some of your favorite dips recipes and I will link some up on the post! My current fave is the Chipotle Ranch at veggiegrill.
