Chickpeas are high in protein and are a good source of calcium and iron. A common ingredient in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines, chickpeas can be stewed, roasted, or ground into flour. They are the base of falafels, channa masala and a staple in Moroccan cooking. Switch out dishes that call for meat with chickpeas for a hearty and satisfying substitution.
Chickpeas are priced per 5 oz, approximately 3/4 cup dried, and 1 1/2 cups cooked.
Soak overnight before cooking.
