Pre-heat the oven to 400F. Cover a flat baking tray with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, toss the chickpeas with the olive oil to coat. Lay on the baking tray and place in the preheated oven. Roast for 15-20 minutes and toss to ensure even cooking. Cook a further 15 minutes or so until crispy.

Remove from the oven and add to a bowl. Immediately toss the hot chickpeas with the Zaatar mix. Enjoy warm or at room temperature. Roasted chickpeas are best enjoyed within an hour or two of roasting but can easily be re-heated in the oven.

If you don't like the texture of chickpeas' papery skins, peel them by gently rubbing their skins off with your fingertips. Make certain that the chickpeas are thoroughly dried before tossing with the olive oil and Zaatar.
