Re­duce heat to medium and sim­mer for 40 min­utes or un­til ten­der. Drain and set aside. 3 Mean­while, toss the chick­peas with the olive oil and spread on a bak­ing tray. Roast for 15 min­utes or un­til golden brown and crunchy, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally; take care as they will splat­ter. 4 Re­move chick­peas from the oven and add za’atar, toss­ing to coat well. Set aside. 5 Cut the cu­cum­ber into quar­ters, length­ways, re­move the seeds and slice thickly. In a large bowl, place the farro, rocket, tomato, cu­cum­ber and onion. Dress with the lemon juice and olive oil and sea­son to taste with salt and pep­per. Add the roasted chick­peas, toss again and crum­ble the feta over the top.
