  • I use them for making hummus and I also use them in salads.
    The only recipe I use chickpeas in is Chickpea and Leek Soup, a recipe by Jamie Oliver. It's delicious. I bet you could find chickpea recipes on!

  • I also use them for making hummus and on salads like the person above. With the hummus tho, not only is it great with toasted pitas for dipping, but it's really yummy on a sandwich in place of mayo.

  • Falafals!! Yummiest chickpea recipe ever!! You make the falafal balls with pureed chick peas, onion, parsely, cumin, salt, pepper, baking soda, and flour. You fry them up in a pan, and serve them in a warm pita with lettuce, tomato, and tahini sauce. Delicious!
