Australian Raw Chickpea 100g
Chickpeas, also known as garbanzos, are widely used for their nutty taste and texture. The seeds are high in fibre and protein and are a good source of iron, phosphorus, and folic acid.
Their golden colour and earthy flavour makes them perfect for Middle Eastern cuisine!! Our premium chickpeas should be a pantry staple, especially if you are trying to cut down on meat consumption.
This prominent ingredient in Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and East Indian dishes — think hummus and falafel — has a mild but hearty flavour. Garbanzos are a good foil for strong spices like curry powder, cumin and cayenne pepper, so add them to salads, soups and pasta dishes.
How Much: 1 Cup ~ 180g
Storage: Store in a cool dry area away from direct sunlight
How to Use: After soaking, they need around two hours to cook through and then can be added to hot dishes such as soups, or left to cool and tossed through salads to add flavour and an interesting texture. Chickpeas form the base of the popular Middle Eastern dip hummus. Try making your own by blending chickpeas with olive oil, garlic, sesame seeds and lemon juice. Try cooking them and make your own falafel, salads, soups and stews!
