Cooked organic chickpeas with no added salt. Rich in protein, vitamins and minerals, and with a meaty, hearty texture, chickpeas are as staple of Indian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cookery.

Add a new dimension to dishes from stews to curries, salads to chowders: try Italian sausage and escarole stew or roasted carrot and chickpea salad. Or make classic hummus or falafels. And as these are pre-cooked, they’re ideal for weeknight cooking: fast food with a difference.

How to store chickpeas

Unopened, tinned chickpeas can be stored indefinitely. Once opened, don’t keep your chickpeas in the tin – turn them out into a covered bowl and they’ll last for 3 or 4 days in the fridge. They can also be frozen, though texture becomes mushier when thawed, so they’ll be better for dips than adding to salads.

Ingredients

Chickpeas, water*, (* non organic).

Allergens in bold

Suitable for vegans.
