Chickpeas are easy to make, they are high in protein and will make a tasty snack when roasted. You can eat them right after boiling too. Chickpeas taste nutty but unlike nuts they are low in fat. They can be used for salads or homemade hummus, make a filling meal or a handy snack.
Chickpeas do require overnight soaking so cooking must be planned in advanced. The cooking process itself is pretty straightforward. Once soaked chickpeas will double in size so keep that in mind.
Tip: Chickpeas can be frozen after boiling and can be kept in a freezer for up to a year.
