Chickpeas or Garbanzo beans are a member of the legume family; they are a type of pulse. They are very tasty whether in a salad or a winter stew. Unfortunately they are quite high in carbohydrates, roughly a quarter of the vegetable. However, they are full of protein, and provide an excellent source of folate (vitamin B9), iron, phosphorus and zinc. They are also a good source of vitamins B1-3, B5, B6, magnesium and potassium.

As they provide a good source of fiber, they will fill you quickly. They are believed to be good for diabetics and digestion. Other Chickpeas benefits include helping lower cholesterol and therefore reducing the risk of heart disease.
