One of the earliest cultivated vegetables, chickpeas have been nourishing humans for over 7000 years. Rich in fibre and a good source of protein, chickpeas are also naturally gluten-free and low in sodium. They are a major source of protein in mostly vegetarian cultures.

With a delicious nutlike taste and buttery texture, chickpeas are a highly versatile legume – a noted ingredient in many Middle Eastern and Indian dishes. They can be cooked and eaten cold in salads or added to stews or made into a paste called hummus. Ground chickpeas, called gram flour, are shaped into balls and fried as falafel or stirred into a batter and baked to make farinata.

Dried chickpeas require a long cooking time (1-2 hours). Cooking time can be shortened if soaked for 12-24 hours.

We are loving our first Ooooby box, my kids asked if they could visit [the growers] to thank them for the amazing apples! Too cute. Totally pleased with the quality, quantity and ease. It was like opening a treasure box.

You guys are doing a great job! We just love our weekly delivery of delicious, organic produce. The best part is opening the box with our daughter and exploring all the different fruits and vegies together. Thank you!
