    Hi Rainie,

    They are also known as garbanzos, chick peas are a legume or dried bean that is high in fiber. It is really yummy made into a Middle Eastern Dip called hummus.

    They are also quite good in soups.

    Great straight from the can (drained) and added to a salad for taste and texture! They're one of my favorites!

    Chickpeas are wonderful. Loaded with nutrients and lots of fiber. They come in a can. I rinse them, and then add them to green salads. Enjoy them.
