Spicy Air-Fried Lemon Chickpeas
Packed with protein and fiber, chickpeas are transformed into an addictive snack when cooked to crispy perfection using a Philip air fryer. Increase the quantity of cayenne pepper if you prefer a spicier snack.
- 1 can (15 oz./470 g) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 Tbs. olive oil
- 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. grated lemon zest
- 1 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
- Kosher salt
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
Preheat a Philips air fryer to 390°F (199°C).
In a bowl, stir together the chickpeas, olive oil, lemon juice and zest, paprika, cumin, 1 tsp. salt and the cayenne.
Place the chickpeas in the variety cooking basket and insert into the air fryer. Cook until the chickpeas are crisp, 8 to 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through cooking.
Transfer the chickpeas to a bowl and season with more salt, if desired. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 2 to 4.
