3 cups cooked chickpeas, rinsed and drained

¼ cup fresh lemon juice

1–1 ½ Tbsp pure maple syrup

½ rounded tsp sea salt

½ tsp grated lemon zest (optional)

Lemon pepper or freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 Tbsp minced fresh oregano (reserve a few pinches)

1 Tbsp minced fresh chives (reserve a few pinches)

1 Tbsp minced fresh thyme (reserve a few pinches)

1 Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

2 Starting with 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, combine all the ingredients except the reserved fresh herbs and the optional lemon zest in a baking dish, and toss to combine.

3 Bake for 25–30 minutes, stirring once or twice, until the chickpeas are a little golden and the marinade is absorbed. Add the reserved fresh herbs and lemon zest (if using) and toss.
