    These chickpeas have a mild, nutty taste to them and are absolutely delicious in curries. They are great value for money as well. Once again, thank you Forest Whole Foods 🙂

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Soak for 8-12 hours
  2. Boil for 10 minutes and then simmer for 1.5-2 hours.
  3. Check they are soft throughout before eating.

Storage

For optimum freshness keep in a cool place away from moisture and direct sunlight.  Store in a tightly sealed bag or container.

Family Tip:

  1. The key to chickpeas is preparation as they need to be soaked and then cooked before eating. We always have bowls of soaked chickpeas waiting in the queue to be cooked.
  2. We love making our own hummus and experimenting with different herbs and spices.  Follow this link for a quick and easy hummus recipe.
  3. Chickpeas go really well in curries, stews and soups as added protein. Chana Dahl is popular in our house!
