In case you don’t know, Chickpeas and Garbanzo Beans are the same thing. You may see the terms used interchangeably.
You can buy chickpeas at most grocery stores in the dried bean area or the canned bean area. I prefer to buy chickpeas in bulk. My favorites are the Palouse Brand. You can taste the difference. The chickpeas are Non-GMO Project Verified, non-irradiated, USA Grown and field traced so you’ll be able to find out the exact field they were grown in.

Plant-Based Chickpea Recipes
I always have canned chickpeas in my pantry. They taste delicious when made into dips, added to salads, and mixed into stir-fry’s. You can even transform them into something else entirely like my Chickpea Nuggets.
Even the liquid you get when cooking chickpeas, aquafaba, can be turned into a whipped consistency like meringue.
