We used a lot of chickpeas while making our cleanses at Joulebody. I like to use it for consistency, texture, health benefits and diversity. It was an ingredient used in our soups, our patties and our dips.
This is why, chickpeas are filled with fiber and plant-protein, as well as minerals. This little pea packs a healthy punch to any recipe and since here at Joule our goal is to help you create a diversified gut health plan, we had to add it to our recipe collection.
