Want the perfect quick snack to enjoy at the weekends? Well today is a good day for you! And what’s more versatile in the world of snacks than tortilla chips, right? Especially high-protein tortilla chips!
The beauty of making your own tortilla chips is that not only are they so, so easy, you can also flavour them however you like: make them spicy, fajita-flavoured, ‘pizza-flavoured’, ‘cheesy’, and so on. These below are plain, waiting to be transformed into nachos when the beef, black beans and salsa are added!
166 grams liquid egg whites
66 grams chickpea flour
10 grams psyllium husks
3 grams wheat bran
8 grams golden linseeds
2 grams hemp seeds
1. First, mix all of the above.
2. Then, on a non-stick pan, spread the mixture as thin as you possibly can (use a spoon). Then: flip it, plate it, NEXT!, spread mixture thinly, flip it, plate it, NEXT!, and so on (basically – it’s like making crepes).
3. When they’re all done, you slice them into triangles and bake them in the oven under high heat (add some sea salt before baking for the crunch and saltiness of tortilla chips; you can also spray with olive oil!
4. Take them out when they look ready!
