Our 9 mm chickpeas have been sourced from Canadian farmers. They have a nutty, buttery flavour and creamy texture. Chickpeas are a staple in many vegetarian diets, since they are rich in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. It is for these same reasons that they are great option for any diet. Chickpeas also have a low glycemic index, meaning they can assist with controlling blood sugar levels. Our 6lb bags are resealable, and ideal for storage in your pantry.

Chickpeas should soak overnight. Place them in a large bowl of cold water. The water level should be substantially higher than the chickpeas as they will expand. Cover and let sit overnight. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. To cook the chickpeas place them in a large pot and cover with several inches of water. Use 4 cups of water for 1 cup of chickpeas. Bring water to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Season with salt if desired. Cook the chickpeas for 60 to 90 minutes, or until desired tenderness is achieved. Drain and let cool.
Store dry and raw chickpeas in a sealed container in a cool dry place. Use within one year for best quality. Cooked chickpeas can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. You may also store cooked chickpeas in the freezer for up to one year in a sealed container or freezer bag.
