    Default 27 Brilliant Ways To Use Chickpeas

    Great Timing! I decided last week I would find ways to eat more chickpeas.

    Let’s talk beans—legumes actually, chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) specifically. They’re pulses, highly nutritious, and full of protein and fiber. Just one serving of chickpeas provides essential vitamins and minerals such as manganese, zinc, iron, folate, phosphorus, and B vitamins. When eaten regularly chickpeas can help to lower cholesterol, curb food cravings, and can help to keep blood sugar level. Chickpeas may even help weight loss because of their high fiber content. Health benefits aside, chickpeas taste great and can be used in a variety of ways. You probably know they’re used in hummus, but that isn’t all. From sauces to soups, to sandwiches, roasts, or even desserts, chickpeas are an incredibly versatile ingredient to add to your pantry

    I have recently, this past year, discovered hummus (emulsified chickpeas), at my local health food co-op. The hummus, according to the ingredient label, comes from organic chick peas, no USDA certification. The garlic version is my favorite, and I further garnish it with either a 4 oz can of organic diced chilis or a 4 oz jar of diced pimentos. Great for dipping organic blue corn chips.

    Grulla, what took you so long? Everybody makes hummus! It's the easiest thing in the world to make! Don't buy the ridiculously overpriced stuff in plastic containers when you can make your own, any flavor, in minutes. Ima go post a recipe in the Kitchen forum right now!
