Chickpeas are an excellent vegan and gluten-free source of protein and fiber, containing exceptional levels of iron, vitamin B-6 and magnesium. You can get raw chickpeas, soak them and cook them, or if you're feeling slightly lazy use canned chickpeas. Sometimes people can get gassy from chickpeas, and the best way to combat that is to rinse out a can, soak it in filtered water with 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar overnight and that should help reduce symptoms.
I had mine with lettuce leaves, balsamic beets and kale hummus, and for my hubby I put it on some quinoa, and he broke it up into pieces for a more filling meal. So easy and yummy!
