Nutty and creamy in flavour, high in fibre and protein – the humble chickpea really punches above its legume weight.
If you go with the canned variety you can even use their liquid – aquafaba – in place of egg whites in your cocktails. Seriously!

These are chickpeas made to please. Go on, roll with it.
