Chickpeas are high in protein, iron and fiber, low in fat, and can help lower cholesterol. They’re also kind of cool looking and have a nice texture, but maybe the most amazing thing about chickpeas is that this giant 6 lb., 14 oz. can only cost $2.69!!!
Are they kidding? That’s like the price of a Big Mac (I think)!
Hummus and falafel aside, there are so many things you can do with them…marinate and eat them in wraps or as a salad, substitute them for pollo, use them in place of meat in tacos, make “chicken” salad out of them. I’m never tired of them!
