What are Chickpeas?

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, Ceci beans and chana are part of the legume plant family, (along with Kidney beans, black beans, lima beans and peanuts!

The most common type of chickpea is round and beige, but they can also be black, green or red. They have a lovely nutty flavour and buttery texture.

How To Cook Dry Chickpeas

Soak the beans in plenty of cold water for at least 8 hours or overnight - add more water if the level gets low. Then drain and rinse well, cover with fresh water and bring to the boil.

Simmer gently for about an hour until tender (don't let them boil or the beans may start to break up). You can add salt after about 30 mins of simmering, once the beans have started to soften, so that the salt can pass through the beans’ softened skin and bring out their flavour. Then drain and season, mash or add to your favourite recipe.

Chickpeas Recipe Ideas

There are so many ways to incorporate chickpeas into your meals! Toss them into a salad with any vinaigrette for an easy protein-packed bean salad, or roast the chickpeas and sprinkle over a salad to add texture and a nutty flavour.  

You could purée them with olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and tahini to make a quick and tasty hummus, add them to a soup or make falafel.

Exceptionally flavoursome chickpeas

These are by far some of the tastiest chickpeas we've ever had. Full of flavour and a meal in their own right. An added bonus is that they are sourced from Europe, which is unusual as we have found that they can often come from farther afield. We're eagerly awaiting organic chickpeas grown in the UK. Whilst chickpeas are indeed beginning to be grown in the UK, they are not organic as yet!

Excellent

These are very good quality and cook really evenly and when left in pressure cooker to cool they come out very juicy and soft.
