Chickpeas are one of those pantry staples that I almost always have on hand. If you don’t have a can or two lurking in a cabinet somewhere, add it to your grocery list immediately. Chickpeas are healthy, delicious, and packed with plant-based protein, but they’re versatile, too. They can blend into creamy, lemony hummus, bake into crispy, herb-flecked falafel, add protein to a salad, crunch to a grain bowl, and so much more! Looking for chickpea recipes?
