Also known as garbanzo beans, chickpeas are the most widely consumed legume in the world. They have a firm texture and delectable taste, reminiscent of chestnut or walnut.
A Middle East staple, chickpeas are great in curries and falafel. Combined with whole grains like rice, they provide a virtually fat-free, high quality protein meal. Chickpeas are superb in salads, soups or casseroles and provide the perfect base for vege patties or falafels.
