Chickpeas

Botanical name: Cicer Arietinum

Also known as Garbanzo beans they are irregular, round, tan coloured seeds which have a delicious nutlike taste and a texture that is buttery, yet somewhat starchy and pasty. A very versatile legume, they are a noted ingredients in many Middle Eastern and Indian dishes such as hummus, falafels and curries.

Chick peas are a legume and therefore contain certain anti-nutrients, but sprouting neutralizes this.

Nutritional Value: They are protein and carbohydrate rich with relatively low calories, low in Saturated Fat, and very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. They are also a good source of Dietary Fibre, Protein and Copper, and a very good source of Folate and Manganese.

Germination: 3-5 days depending on weather conditions. Air dry once sprouted and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
