Posted on

SERVES 4

2 large cans chickpeas

1 cup olive oil

1 Tbsp. lemon zest, strips

1 Tbsp. smoked paprika

1 sprig fresh thyme

1 coarse salt to taste

4 pieces garlic, sliced

Drain chickpeas and set on paper towels over a colander to dry throughly (can be done one day in advance).

Heat oil in a large pan (preferably cast-iron) to 355ºF or until oil makes bubbles around one chickpea. Add lemon zest, thyme sprig, and fry chickpeas in batches so pan doesn't crowd. Fry about 5 minutes until crunchy and golden-brown.

Remove chickpeas and herbs from oil, drain well over colander/sieve. Add sliced garlic to oil and fry until golden. Drain.

Toss chickpeas and garlic with smoked paprika and salt, adding more if necessary. Serve warm.
