Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are a part of my Mediterranean roots, used often in Greek, Italian and Middle Eastern, Portuguese, and Spanish cuisines.  Chickpeas are super high in protein and fibre; aid in digestion, inflammation, bone health, cholesterol- just to name a few. There are so many reasons why you should be adding Chickpeas to your daily eating regime, so I have posted for all you lovely this simple Hummus recipe for you to enjoy. Get blending!
