Chickpeas are one of the most popular and versatile pulses and they are a nutritional powerhouse.
In keeping with the pulse theme I thought it would be fun to round up some fun and creative ways to fit chickpeas into your diet. With the help of my BGB friends here are a collection of drool-worthy, chickpea containing recipes.
Don’t forget it’s also easy to add pureed chickpeas to pasta sauce or whole chickpeas to salad, soup, stew or chili to add more nutrients, including protein, fibre, and folate.
