A supremely versatile pulse, chick peas can be eaten hot, cold, mashed, fried, grilled, boiled... Add them to salads and soups, or whip them up with tahini, oil and garlic to make houmous.
Rich in protein and fibre, chick peas are also recommended as part of a low cholesterol diet.
Preparation: soak for 12 hours, drain and cook in lots of boiling salted water for 45 to 50 minutes.
