Lebanese Roasted Chickpeas are a delicious and healthy way to add crunch and flavor to humus, salad or just to snack on!

Like potato chips, the flavor options for Roasted Chickpeas are endless! I’ve seen spicy siracha flavored, beans sprinkled with za’atar, barbecue and even ranch flavored. My favorite way to enjoy them? Lebanese Roasted Chickpeas, sprinkled with sumac and a bit of coriander. They are so good!

And did I mention how EASY they are to make! The hardest part of it is peeling the chickpeas, but there are a few ways to peel them easily:

  1. Have your maid do it for you! (expat life is great isn’t it!)
  2. Soak the chickpeas in a deep bowl and fill with water. Rub the chickpeas in your hands to loosen the skin. As the skin floats to the top, remove them. Continue rubbing the peas until you’ve removed the peel from all of them.

But after you peel them you just toss it with a bit of olive oil and seasoning and there you go- Roasted Chickpeas! Spread them on a baking sheet and roast for 40 minutes- stirring occasionally. So easy!

I’ve made them a few times, and I end up eating the whole can by myself- because I didn’t share with anyone. I just make them, and find a dark quiet corner and pop one bean after another in my mouth until they’re all gone.
But this time I decided to be nice and share them with my friend Haley. Poor Haley. She is my guinea pig when it comes to trying different foods and deciding which of the 4563422 pictures that I should use. She’s honest- even when she’s being nice the look on her face is a giveaway if whatever I forced her to eat doesn’t taste good. So I decided to be nice and share the Lebanese Roasted Chickpeas with her. Luckily for me- and her- she loved them! As I was getting ready to go for a walk with her, she stood in my kitchen enjoying handfuls on the beans! She kept laughing at them and calling them

“Buttnuts”!

Lol!

They’re not called Buttnuts Haley!  They’re called chickpeas or garbanzo beans.

In fact I have a question- do you call these cute little buttnuts chickpeas or garbanzo beans?  Hmmm….

I hope you love these chickpeas as much as Haley and I did! Please leave a comment and let me know!

I think there aren't enough things in the world with Sumac in them! I wish I had the option of a maid to do things for me - lol. When I peel chickpeas, I use a little baking soda and heat them in the microwave - they slide right off!

I LOVE roasted chickpeas. My go to is rosemary garlic if I'm craving savoury or maple chai if I want something sweet. I'll definitely be giving these a try when my next savoury craving hits though!

When I was a child, I read a book in which the children snacked on chickpeas. Imagine my disappointment the first time I encountered (cooked) chickpeas - didn't seem at all as nice a snack as they'd said! Well, then, as an adult, not only did I learn to love cooked chickpeas - I also learned that *roasted* ones do indeed make a delightful snack! Don't think I've had them with coriander - I have to try this!

We used to buys roasted chick peas and many other beans in stores back in India. There was a designated store that you would know from miles away because of the aroma and I loved to sample out different roasted beans. Love the flavors you have in the chick peas. I am a big Middle Eastern spices fan and this is right up my alley. Coming to the rubbing the skin off, I need to get my husband to work!

I don't think anyone can love chickpeas as much as I do!! Roasted, they are the perfect crunchy snack. I never try them with sumac. Now I'm intrigued....

Healthy snacks are awesome. We love using chickpeas in so many ways. They are delicious, and from what I can see here, these would be totally addictive.

Roasted chickpeas are my all time favourite snack. My whole family loves them and we make them regularly. I've never cooked with sumac before, but now I need to do just that!

Stephanie@ApplesforCJ said : Guest Report Feb 11, 2017 at 3:52 AM

Chickpeas are actually one of my favorites. I don't know why I haven't tried roasting them yet. Thanks for sharing that tip on how to remove the skins. I think that would be handy also when using them in other recipes. Can't wait to try these :)

I may go back to evening snacking with these tasty little morsels. My hubby prefers them with garlic salt and pepper. Thanks Hanady for another winning recipe!

This looks SO good! I'm originally from Jordan and we used to make this all the time when I was younger. Love the addition of sumac in this.

These look great! I've never tasted sumac, but love coriander. FYI, sumac can create an anaphylactic reaction in some people with nut allergies!
