Product of Canada

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 bags are resealable, and ideal for storage in your pantry. 

  • Versatile Nutritional Powerhouse: Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are a treasure trove of nutrients, offering a high fiber content that aids in digestive health and helps maintain a feeling of fullness. Rich in plant-based protein, they are an excellent dietary option for vegetarians and vegans looking to boost their protein intake. Additionally, chickpeas are packed with essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, phosphorus, and B vitamins, contributing to overall health and well-being. 
  • Heart Health Hero: The humble chickpea boasts impressive benefits for heart health. Its high fiber content plays a crucial role in lowering harmful LDL cholesterol levels, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease. Chickpeas are also abundant in potassium and magnesium, essential nutrients that help regulate blood pressure. The combination of these attributes makes chickpeas a valuable ally in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.
  • Culinary Chameleon: Beyond their nutritional benefits, chickpeas stand out for their culinary versatility. Whether blended into a smooth hummus, roasted for a crunchy snack, or incorporated into salads, soups, and stews, chickpeas add a deliciously nutty flavor and satisfying texture to a wide array of dishes. Their ability to absorb flavors from herbs and spices makes them a favorite ingredient in cuisines worldwide, from the Middle Eastern falafel to Indian chana masala.

Cooking Instruction  

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. 

Storage

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.
