Baked feta and chickpea parcel

Baked feta and chickpea parcel

This is such a simple and effective way to cook chickpeas in the oven. Wrapped in paper with a block of feta and plenty of olive oil, they sizzle and soak up the flavours of the herbs, lemon zest and chilli.
  • Cooking:
  • Serves: 2 persons



  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
  2. Step 2

    Lay a sheet of foil onto a work surface, then lay two sheets of greaseproof paper in a cross shape on top. Add the feta and scatter the chickpeas on top of the cheese and around it
  3. Step 3

    Scatter over the lemon zest and spices, thyme and garlic, and cover everything in a good glug of olive oil. Season the chickpeas with some salt - not too much since the feta is already very salty
  4. Step 4

    Wrap the foil up around the baking paper and seal the package tightly. Place the package onto a baking tray and transfer to the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the feta is soft and everything is piping hot
