I recently rediscovered chickpeas. Who knew so much power was packed in such a humble little pea? These babies are chock full of protein & fiber, while staying very low in fat. Most of the fat is unsaturated as well!
When you get the canned variety, look for the no salt/low salt versions. If you can’t find them, rinsing your chickpeas off before eating will actually get rid of a lot of that excess salt.
This recipe is very quick savory & sweet salad that will add a nice flavor variety to any meal.
- 2 cans chickpeas
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 1 gala apple
- 1/2 TB ground cinnamon
- Drain & rinse chickpeas to get rid of excess salt
- Place raisins in a bowl with water and let them rehydrate (You can speed this process up by heating the water as well), and then drain
- Slice apple into little bite sized pieces
- Toss all ingredients together in a bowl and serve room temp or cold
