Description

Organic Chickpeas are delicious in chana dal.

Organic Chickpeas are the starting point for so many delicious recipes.  They are one of the meatier textures when it comes to beans and pulses and they make fantastic curries.

Just one serving (120g) of chickpeas is high in high in Folate, Manganese, Copper and a source of Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Iron and Zinc.

If you combine chickpeas with whole grains or nuts then you get a complete protein containing all the essential amino acids needed by the body – good news for vegetarians and vegans.  If you like making your own dips then follow this link for a quick and easy hummus recipe.

Why not try something different and have a go at making your falafals with this organic turmeric falafal recipe?

It’s hard to find a plant-based foodie who doesn’t know all about the wondrous chickpea and its potential for delicious meals.

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!
