Chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans, originated in the Mediterranean / Middle East, but are now found in cuisines around the world.
Chickpeas are high in protein making them an excellent meat substitute for vegetarian and vegan diets.  Chickpeas are a good source of fiber. This means they can keep your appetite sated longer. These above benefits + their low Glycemic Index means chickpeas support steady blood glucose levels.
Their texture is firm and flavour is mild and nutty. They're great for warm or cold salads, soups, curries, dals, and as a meat substitute in burgers or tacos. They may be best known in falafel and hummus. Roasted garbanzo beans are also a satisfying snack.
Soak before cooking.
