Toothsome, nutty chickpeas make delicious salads, pasta dishes, hummus, and more. When cooked with whole grains like brown rice or tucked into whole-grain pitas, they form a complete protein. And if you take the time to sprout them, you don’t have to soak chickpeas before cooking for a tender, easy-to-digest dish!
Chickpeas are a treasure trove of vitamins and minerals, including molybdenum, manganese, folate, copper, phosphorus, and zinc. Vegetarians and vegans, rejoice: garbanzo beans are packed with iron and have more protein per quarter-cup (about ten grams, to be exact) than an egg! They are also rich in fiber, including colon-healthy insoluble fiber, and antioxidants like flavonoids, which reduce risk of heart disease and cancer.
FUN FACT! The famous Roman orator Cicero (you know, the other guy assassinated in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar) came from a family of garbanzo bean farmers. “Cicer” is Latin for “garbanzo bean.”
