Za’atar Roasted Chickpeas (Air-Fried)

Have you ever roasted chickpeas? They’re fun to make – and fun to eat, too. But they do take a bit of time in the oven. However, if you air-fry, that shortens the cook time by half!

These Za’atar Roasted Chickpeas are deliciously easy. And there are so many ways to enjoy them. High in fiber and low in fat, they’re a super grab-by-the-handful snack, and they add the best ever crunch (instead of croutons) to a salad.

ZA’ATAR ROASTED CHICKPEAS (AIR-FRIED)

1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon Za’atar seasoning
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

Place rinsed chickpeas in a medium bowl. Toss with lemon juice, Za’atar seasoning, Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Place chickpeas in an air fryer basket, and roast at 400 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes, or until golden and crispy.

Carefully remove from air fryer. Allow to cool, and enjoy. (These won’t stay crispy for a super long time – because we aren’t using any oil – so do serve them shortly after preparation.)
