Za’atar Roasted Chickpeas

Za’atar Roasted Chickpeas

Ahh, za’atar, a delicious spice blend of┬ásumac, thyme, oregano, sesame seeds and salt – there’s nothing quite like it!

When my grilled corn with za’atar garlic butter was recently featured in a lineup of za’atar recipes on The Huffington Post, I knew I had to reach for the Middle Eastern spice once again.

People are always asking me for healthy snack recipes that they can make on a whim. And I always suggest my go-to diet snack – roasted chickpeas. I give lots of savory & sweet ideas in this old post, but it’s buried deep into my blog, and it doesn’t get much attention. So here we are again with this new za’atar variation – my favorite flavor of all!

  1. My husband was just telling me needed a batch of roasted chickpeas to take to work. I think I’ll do it with zaatar this time! Thanks for the great idea!

  2. This recipe looks amazing! I am definitely going to try it! I was introduced to Za’atar by Kim Kushner’s blog. Many of her recipes contain Za’atar as an added touch. I fell completely in love and add it to many recipes for the extra kick! My favorite recipe is the “Home Made Pita Chips”, they are a staple in my apartment! http://kimkushner.com/tag/breads-chips/#sthash.rx16L2uw.dpbs scroll down to find the recipe!

  3. Love your Middle Eastern recipes, and the creative Hamantini! I just posted your za’atar roasted chickpeas on Tasting Jerusalem’s FB page. I think I need to make them for a Jerusalem-inspired cookbook dinner this weekend.
