Chickpeas rock. Puree them with tahini for hummus, add them to all sorts of stews and soups, make a delicious lunch treat by combining chickpeas, olive oil, chopped hardboiled eggs and Ras el Hanout
or a simple, filling dish of chickpeas and rice over salad greens and sprinkled with soy sauce...mmm! And of course, they're super healthy, like all dried beans.
Why Use Dried Beans?
With a little advance planning for soaking time
, dried beans are easy to prepare, and you'll really notice the difference in flavor and consistency compared to canned beans.
