A selection of the top chickpea recipes from around the web! From homemade falafel patties chickpea salads, hearty dinners, and even vegan desserts!
Did you know that chickpeas have been around since the time of ancient Egypt? And they have been a big part of the Mediterranean lifestyle since! So it’s fair to say that chickpeas are not as trendy as some might think.
What makes them so popular in today’s kitchen is their versatility. Of all the legumes, I probably use chickpeas most. Of course they are a star ingredient in creamy dips like hummus; but there are many more ways to leverage this protein-packed, fiber rich bean.
Today’s list of 24 chickpea recipes includes a handful of my own, plus many more recipes from other sites. There is something for everyone on this list, from Chickpea salads and small plates, to chickpea dinners and even vegan desserts. Enjoy!
