Can I eat chickpeas from the can?
Canned chickpeas are already cooked and ready to serve. This makes them so convenient to keep on hand when you need to add a quick protein to salads.
Are chickpeas good for weight loss?
If you’re following a Weight Watchers diet, you probably already know chickpeas are 0 points. They are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and are high in protein, and make an excellent replacement for meat in vegetarian and vegan diets.
Swap out vegetables
This recipe is so versatile, you can substitute your favorite vegetables; adding red pepper or green pepper, white onion for the green or red onion.
Adding feta cheese makes a nice variation, but since feta is quite salty itself start with less salt if you choose to add salt and pepper.
