Chickpeas are a great source of dietry fiber, potassium, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and selenium which all help to support heart health.

Chickpea (Cicer Arietinu) is a member of the legume, pea, or pulse family, ”Fabaceae”, also called Leguminosae. Remains of chickpeas from 7,500 years ago have been found in the Middle East where they are thought to originate. There are two main types of chickpeas grown today the “Desi” and “Kabuli”. Desi are smaller and usually darker in colour and Kabuli are what you would recognize as the common chickpea. Both are delicious!
