Servings: 3-1/2 cups
Kosher Key:
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Total Time: 40 Minutes
  • 2 (15 oz) cans chickpeas, drained and patted completely dry
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup grated (crumbly) Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • Drain and rinse your chickpeas under cold water, patting completely dry with a paper towel.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss gently until chickpeas are covered uniformly in seasonings.
  • Set air fryer to 390 degrees F. Divide chickpeas into three batches, air frying one batch at a time as to not overcrowd them. Air fry for 5-6 minutes, remove and shake the basket and air fry for another 5 minutes or until desired crispiness is reached. Repeat with each batch until done.
  • Serve immediately or cool chickpeas in a single layer on paper towels or parchment sheets before storing in parchment bags for up to three days.
