Chickpeas are a crowd favourite for a reason: they are filling, nutritious and super versatile. With 5 grams each of fiber and protein per half cup cooked, chickpeas are also an easy way to boost your mineral intake. A half cup contains about 1 gram each of zinc and iron, plus plenty of potassium, calcium and manganese. 

I love using chickpeas morning, noon and night, from my chickpea scramble to chickpea tuna, pumpkin hummus and roasted everything bagel chickpeas and more!
