Cauliflower swap recipes had the spotlight for quite a while, but a new trend is emerging in 2020. Chickpea swap recipes are now everywhere. Don’t ditch the cauliflower swap recipes altogether. Instead, add some GR8 chickpea-based dishes into the rotation. Since eating meat is linked to an imbalanced gut microbiome, keeping as many plant-based meals on the menu is essential.

The Health Benefits of Chickpeas

Chickpeas have been popular in the Middle East for centuries, and many of their most common recipes have made their way west over time. Hummus is a party dip favorite, and a trip to the local supermarket’s salad bar will almost certainly provide chickpeas as a topping option. Because of the legume’s many health benefits, people are starting to take notice of chickpeas in their most versatile forms.

Health Benefits of Chickpeas Include:

Not to mention, they provide a source of folate, fiber, phosphorus, copper, iron, and manganese. For vegetarians and vegans, chickpeas are a diet must-have. Best of all, they’re generally inexpensive, and you can buy them fresh, frozen, dried, or canned.

Chickpeas Serve a Dual Purpose

Research shows that just 14% of adults consume the recommended amount of legumes, which possess the benefits of both vegetables and meats. Substituting chickpeas for other common ingredients can help meet the needs of both food groups, all in one dish.

Not only can they help individuals meet dietary recommendations, but chickpeas give dishes a hearty, rich, nutty flavor. They’re far from bland, a common fear amongst diners who opt for a plant-based swap. Chickpeas can help satisfy those carbs you’ve been craving and curb your appetite.

Chickpeas for All Occasions

Chickpeas make for a GR8 substitution in all food courses and meals. From breakfast to dinner, appetizers to dessert, there’s no occasion you can’t find a chickpea swap recipe for. There are also some super fancy chickpea chocolate truffle recipes for the extra-daring top chef.

Living a plant-based life has never tasted better. Get cooking today and find your chickpea heaven.
