This high protein legume (beans and peas are also legumes) can be eaten in salads, turned into falafel or hummus, ground into flour, added to soups, stews, stir fries, curries and … the list might be endless. 🙂
Canned or re-hydrated (if you buy them dry you need to soak them in water over night) they have a firm bean texture and nutty taste. You are going to want to have these in your diet if you are eating little or no meat as they are rich in iron.
I like eating them straight from the can but recently I made a Moroccan styled chicken and chickpea stew.
Dietary Info: Great for vegetarians, vegans and is gluten free.
