Bunja Mix

What you need: 

2 tins chickpeas
1 tin soya beans
1 packet crunchy vegan Chinese noodles (I use a brand called 'Chang's', Gluten free)
3/4 cup frozen or fresh peas
1/2 sultana/raisins
1/2 peanuts
cooking spray
curry powder
chilli powder
black pepper

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 395 Fahrenheit.
Mix up all the spices together. Rinse the beans and chickpeas and dry them in a towel. Place noodles, peas, beans, chickpeas and peanuts into separate baking trays (don't mix together because they have different cooking times). Spray them with cooking spray, sprinkle some of the spices and mix so that they are coated well. Make sure that the beans and peas are nicely spread out on the tray.
Bake until crisp (about 20 minutes for the nuts, 40 minutes for the beans and noodles, an hour for the peas). Make sure every 10-15 minutes you stir the trays.
Once all ingredients are very crisp (but not burnt!) remove from oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes. Once cool, transfer to one big bowl, add sultanas and mix it all up.
Store in an air tight container or jar.

Thank you for this recipe.  I buy stuff like this pre-made all of the time.  It is expensive.

And I bet this tastes better.  Lots better.  I will certainly try it and let you know how it went.
