Super EASY Chickpea Recipes

Hello and welcome to yeyfood.com. yeyfood.com a brand new website that I have created because many of you have expressed interest in seeing my own recipes and more recipes in a single post.

Many of you may know me from the budgetmeals Facebook page. For over 7 years I have been sharing other people’s recipes with you all, but now it is time to go it alone and start doing long form recipes. So I hope you enjoy my content and make a few if not all of the recipes we share!

I wanted to start this website with a food that is VERY underrated and most people don’t use on a day to day basis. The humble CHICKPEA!

What are chickpeas

If you didn’t know, Chickpeas are a key ingredient in hummus. If you like hummus you are going to LOVE the chickpea recipes I am sharing with you today!

Chickpeas are packed full of protein. Just for a quick example 1 tbsp of chickpeas has a whopping 2.4 g of protein. So if you are in the mood for a meat free meal, making falafel is a great option to get a lot of plant based protein.

You can make chickpeas into flour, which has recently grown in popularity across the world as a glutenfree alternative to wheat flour.

Give me the best chickpea recipes

Ok. Here you go. I have selected some of the easiest and best tasting chickpea recipes that I could find. They are all below in no particular order. If you decide to make one of the suggested recipes please send us a picture over on FACEBOOK, I would LOVE to see the food you have made!
