Alton Brown's Crunchy Chickpeas

From Alton Brown
Crunched for time? Then you're gonna dig Alton Brown's recipe for Crunchy Chickpeas. No need to use cooked chickpeas. Just soak our dried York chickpeas in vinegar and follow Alton's easy instructions. He says these are like salt & vinegar chips, only crunchier. They’re a delicious, healthy option for your next snack attack.

Za'atar-Spiced Crispy Chickpeas

Courtesy Chef Robin Leventhal, as featured in Edible Seattle
These are an addictive snack with plenty of delicate crunch. If you’re not familiar with za’atar, it’s a relative of the thyme plant that grows wild in Israel. In the U.S., it’s most commonly seen blended with sumac, sesame seeds and salt for a slightly tart, savory seasoning that’s known by the same name as the herb.

From PCC Natural Markets. A really well-made hummus bi tahini is a thing of beauty, with complex, balanced flavor. It’s likely familiar as a dip for vegetables, but try adding it to burgers, noodle salads, deviled eggs or salad dressing.
