Chickpeas are known for their richness in vitamins and minerals, especially fibre. It offers plenty of health benefits such as: improving digestion, and it can help you manage your weight properly.

As it’s incredibly high in protein, it’s a great substitute for meat in vegan diets. I recommend this nutritious ingredient when you’re transitioning into a vegan diet.

I added pomegranate because it’s so flavourful and, at the same time, it has anti-inflammatory factors.

You can also add vegetables of your choice as this recipe is quite versatile.

    I love the pairing of ingredients and the quick turn around. We’ve tried a chickpea salad before, but weren’t sold. I think the pomegranates might be the trick here, such a combination of flavors.

    This salad looks so good. I really enjoy chickpeas and hummus but I have to admit I don’t eat them too often. I think that this will help me try something a little different.
