Chickpeas: What’s Not to ♥ ♥ ♥ !!!

I am a big fan of chickpeas!

What about you?

I have a lot of cooking and baking planned for the next couple of weeks, with chickpeas to use in a couple of the recipes.

Below is a Veggies…post from a few years ago, featuring a couple of my favorite chickpea recipes.

Hope you enjoy them soon and DO let me know if you give them a try.



I’m a big fan of chickpeas.

I use them in all kinds of recipes: soups, stews, curries, hummus…

their nutty rich flavor and the unique texture they add to dishes too.

And they are sooooooo good for us! 😉

There are many health benefits derived from eating chickpeas, you can read more about that here and here. 

On the menu for supper tonight:

Slow Cooker Veggie Curry

And to add to this week’s snacks with crudites, crackers…

Fresh Rosemary Hummus

What’s your favorite way of using them in recipes?

Happy Cooking! 🙂

  1. Hi Geraldine 🙂 I do love hummus once in a while. I used to eat falafel quite a bit. But my tastes have changed over the years and I’m not such a big fan of chickpeas anymore! Plus, my digestion tells me it ain’t happenin’ when I try to eat hummus now!!!

  2. They are always handy to have around in cans.

  3. Everything look delicious. Perhaps, some day I will try to cook something with chickpeas.

  4. These recipes are both delicious. And the photos are making me hungry.

  5. Thats too bad Rain. I’m crazy about hummus. I eat way too much when I make a batch. My recipe features fresh rosemary which really adds to the flavor. 😊

    I try to stay away from canned goods Christine but they definitely are handy when time is limited. More organic canned beans now which I also appreciate.😊

    Thanks Kaya! These are both photos from my first cookbook, I can take credit for the recipes but not the actual photos!😁

    I agree Joe, they make me hungry too.

    Happy Week and happy cooking.😊😊😊

  6. If I’ve eaten a chick pea i don’t know – …but I have never to my knowledge had one. Maybe it’s time to try it. The photos look deicious.

Thanks so much for your comments!
