One of the earliest cultivated legumes in the world, chickpeas are a protein staple in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines. They are a key ingredient in hummus and chana masala, and are known for their nutty flavour and buttery texture.
Chickpeas are a great protein substitute for those trying to cut back on their meat consumption or adopting a few more meatless Monday's.
Each serving of Organic Chickpeas delivers 7g of protein. Add them to dips, stews, salads, and more!
To prepare chickpeas, soak them in plenty of cold water for 8 hours or overnight. Rinse thoroughly before bringing to boil in a pot of water at a ratio of 1:3. Let boil on medium heat for about 50 minutes, or until they will break apart with a fork and are tender to eat.
