For The Love Of Chickpeas

We’re here to tell you that chickpeas are more than just a bean dip.

Known for their starring role in the Mediterranean masterpiece, hummus, chickpeas have found their way into our hearts and our pantries. But did you know that this round, nutty legume makes a tasty ingredient in everything from salads to soups to pasta dishes?

It’s no wonder a 2021 food trend report names chickpeas “the new cauliflower.” These loveable legumes are as versatile as they are healthy. Chickpeas—also known as garbanzo beans—are loaded with heart-healthy fiber and contain a number of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals too. In addition, their high protein content makes them a valuable alternative for those that follow vegetarian and vegan diets.
