Chickpeas nutrition are a potent package of protein, vitamins and minerals too, which is why they are often included in many healing diets as a nourishing food.
Our chickpeas are thick in size and of yellow/brown colour. However, you should never forget to soak the chickpeas overnight before cooking them. Apart from making regular chickpea soup, you can also make delicious salads by combining them with vegetables and herbs. Another delicious way to use chickpeas is to make a "revithada" (chickpea soup) - mashed chickpeas, or even chickpea patties.
