An organic kick from chickpea!
From the delicious Aduki chickpeas, you can get a wide variety of different nutrients with very little effort, e.g. calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, manganese, selenium and folate.
Chickpeas keep you full for a long time, as they are high in protein (20g/100g) and fiber (12g/100g). Chickpeas, like other legumes, are rich in proteins and nutrients from the flora.
Use of chickpeas: chickpeas taste great both hot or cold and are perfect for salads, casseroles or hummus. They are great as a side dish to a salad, as a hummus on top of bread, or a great snack for Netflix and chill.
Instructions for cooking chickpeas: Dry chickpeas should be soaked well in water for 10-12 hours and then rinsed and boiled in fresh water for one hour.
