Chickpea recipe roundup

Ways to enjoy this terrific source of protein and nutrients!

Whether you call them pulses, legumes or garbanzo beans, chickpeas are a rich source of  vitamins, minerals and fibre. They also are known for improving digestion, assisting with weight management and reducing the risk of several diseases including diabetes and heart disease. As well, chickpeas are a favourite with vegetarians and vegans because they are high in protein and low in fat. Some of my favourite recipes call for canned chickpeas while others start with dried ones. Be aware that if you are working with dried chickpeas (which are super inexpensive and have a long shelf life), you will need to soak and cook them first. Just click on the titles below to jump to each recipe.
