These little nuggets are versatile and chock full of nutrition – a perfect addition to your table today.


Chickpeas have a slight nutty flavor and hold up very well to cooking. Very versatile, chickpeas are equally at home in soups, stews, curries, and salads. They can be roasted and seasoned to make a crunchy snack, ground into a flour and baked into a sweet treat, or pureed into a dip or spread.
