CHICKPEAS: NUTRIENT-RICH LEGUME

Chickpeas have an impressive nutrition profile. They are high in fiber and a great source of plant-based protein. They also have a fairly low glycemic index so your body can absorb and digest them slowly.

You can use them in a variety of dishes, both sweet and savory.  I really enjoy making desserts and sweet treats with chickpeas. That way, I can satisfy my sweet tooth without feeling guilty.

TIPS AND HOW-TOS

Chickpeas: I always cook chickpeas the night before (see How to cook chickpeas) but if you don’t feel like cooking, you can use canned chickpeas.

Rice milk: You can use other plant-based milk like almond, soy, or oat.

Coconut cream: Chill full-fat canned coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight so that you can easily separate cream from the liquid. The cream should be firm enough so that you can scoop it out with a spoon.

HOW TO COOK CHICKPEAS

  • Wash chickpeas really well, add them to a large bowl and cover with water. The chickpeas will triple in size so it’s important to add plenty of water. Soak the chickpeas for at least 12 hours, best overnight.
  • Drain and rinse soaked chickpeas and place them in a large pot. Cover the chickpeas with water and bring everything to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until they are tender, 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • It’s best if you keep the lid on but slightly ajar allowing some steam to escape while cooking. Keep an eye on the water level during cooking and top up with fresh hot water from time to time if needed.
  • Keep cooked chickpeas in the fridge for 3-4 days.

HOW TO ROAST HAZELNUTS

Roasting hazelnuts deepens their flavor and gives them a crisper texture. Here is how to do it:

  • Preheat oven to 175 °C. Spread the hazelnuts in an even layer on the baking sheet. Place in oven and roast for 10-15 minutes. Stir or shake the tray every 5 minutes to help the hazelnuts to cook evenly.
  • When the hazelnuts are browned and smell nutty, remove from the oven, and immediately transfer onto a plate or another baking sheet.
  • Once they are cool enough, place them in a clean tea towel and gently rub together until most of the skins have come off.
