From crunchy, spicy snacks to main ingredients, chickpeas are one of the best ingredients you can keep in your pantry. Chickpeas seem to be everywhere lately (like hiding in your pantry) and for good reason; this protein-packed legume is high in fiber, folate and zinc, and has been said to even help with weight loss. Chickpeas have been turned into hummus for too long—they deserve a moment in the spotlight, and these genius recipes are making it happen.
