So, what is chickpea?

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are a type of legume that have been cultivated for thousands of years. These small, creamy-colored beans are a rich source of plant-based protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates. Chickpeas have a nutty, earthy flavor and a firm, chewy texture that makes them a versatile ingredient in many cuisines. They can be roasted for a crunchy snack, mashed into hummus, added to stews and curries, or blended into savory pancakes. Chickpeas are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, including iron, folate, and phosphorus. They're a great choice for vegetarians and vegans, as well as anyone looking to add more plant-based protein to their diet.
