Personally I did not like chickpeas, they were not part of my diet. I started cooking them a few months ago after eating them at my friend’s house, they were so delicious. It was then that I realized that I was missing all the nutritional benefits in them.
Now, chickpeas are part of my diet, I cook them almost every weekend. I add them to my salads, in addition to that, I also use the chickpea flour in some of my baked and fried foods.
You can make a variety of delicious dishes from chickpea. I normally cook a lot over the weekends and freeze for later use. This helps save time on meal planning especially during the jam-packed weekdays.
I do not have to go shopping or cook every meal from scratch on a nightly basis. You can cook and freeze them too for your weekday dishes.
