Chickpeas are just great, It doesn't matter if they come out of a tin or are soaked over night and cooked. They're always rather wonderful.
Mind you if you are buying tinned, look in the world food aisle of your local supermarket, you'll find the chickpeas there are cheaper and better quality. I like East End Chickpeas. They're big and creamy, just as they should be. I can eat them like sweeties.
This chickpea salad with tomato sauce and wakame seaweed is a great lunchtime salad served cold or you could serve it warm as a side dish. It's packed with protein and lots of hidden veggies, so it's super healthy too.
