  • About

Chickpeas have a distinctly nutty flavour and a much firmer texture than beans, but are cooked in exactly the same way. Lime juice helps give the dressing a different flavour and is added to the chickpeas while they are still hot. Spanish chickpeas, garbanzos, are particularly good if you can find them.
