Chickpeas are a perfect nutritional snack. They contain magnesium, iron, copper, zinc and fiber. Studies show that people who add chickpeas to their diets feel more satisfied, and as a result, eat less processed foods. You can snack on chickpeas by themselves or sprinkle them on salads or soups.*
To make chickpea hummus, add one can of chickpeas, the juice of one lemon, a ¼ cup of store-bought tahini, a garlic clove, a teaspoon of salt and a ½ teaspoon of cumin to a food processor. Blend and serve with fresh veggies for dipping.
