This is such a fun and lively side dish! I made this up one day with ingredients that I had on hand. I have made it as an Asian side dish, an Indian side dish, and even as a Mexican side dish. It really works any way! If you don't have sesame or chili oil, any oil will do, just cut it down to only 2 tablespoons. I just really LOOOOOVE sesame oil! Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onion and garlic in the sesame and chili oils over medium heat in a small skillet until onions are soft.
  2. Add chickpeas and stir mixture until heated through, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low and add lime juice.
  4. Cook, stirring frequently for 1 minute.
  5. Season with salt, pepper and cilantro.

Wonderful little side dish! I made this two nights in a row because I love it so much. It is good hot or cold. This will be made on a regular basis at our house. Thanks for the recipe!
