Use Up Your Chickpeas

Sweet or savoury, that can of chickpeas goes a long way.

Hack number one

Chickpea Cookie Dough

Chickpea Cookie Dough

Did you know you can make a dessert version that tastes like chocolate cookie dough? It's simple and easy - mix a can of drained chickpeas with brown sugar, a splash of milk, a spoonful of unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla, and a dash of salt until it's smooth and creamy. For the best taste and texture, refrigerate for at least one hour. Since this makes a delicious dip for fruits and crackers, it's a great way to sneak healthy food into your kids' snack time. You may even be tempted to eat it straight from the jar as an afternoon snack or movie night dessert.

Number two


Roasted and Spiced Chickpeas

Roasted chickpeas are a great substitute for croutons in salads, or simply enjoy them on their own as a snack. Season chickpeas with oil, salt and pepper before roasting then bake until crispy. Once out of the oven, top with your favourite herbs. We recommend fennel seeds, cumin, curry powder or chilli flakes for a kick of flavour.

Number three

Make Your Salads Burst With

Salad Booster

Make your salads burst with flavour. This chickpea blend is a great salad topper or pita filling. To make, mash canned chickpeas with a fork and mix with mayonnaise, sliced green onions, diced celery and finely chopped dill pickles. Add herbs, tomatoes, cucumber and parsley. Add a big scoop to your favourite mix of salad greens and chopped veggies. Drizzle with your favourite salad dressing for a refreshing spring salad. Add canned tuna for extra protein-it will stay fresh for two days in the fridge. Without tuna, you can keep the blend in the fridge for up to three days.
