Chickpeas: How many different ways can we cook them?


Chickpeas are a very nutritious and healthy legume and can be used in a number of recipes. Rich in protein, it is ideal for those following a vegan or vegetarian diet. There is no one and only way to consume chickpeas.

Beyond the classic recipe (in the pot or in the kettle), there are many, different but also delicious solutions to include them in your diet.

Why include them in your diet?

Besides being the most delicious legumes for many, they are also very healthy. So why not include them in our diet? They are rich in fiber. This means that they contribute to the proper functioning of the intestine while at the same time creating a feeling of satiety, protecting us from cravings.

At the same time, they are a good source of protein, which makes them a food especially loved by vegans, who are constantly finding new creative recipes. Vegetable proteins, more than animal proteins, reduce the feeling of hunger, so we eat smaller amounts and feel full.

Therefore, chickpeas help in losing weight or maintaining body weight.
