These crispy chickpeas may become your new favorite snack. They are tossed with za'atar (a sesame seed, sumac, oregano, and cumin spice blend) and then roasted until chickpeas take on a nutty flavor and texture. Serve as a snack or as part of our Over the Top Hummus Bar.
You can find za'atar and local specialty stores and large supermarkets or on amazon.
