Bean meets green

For a lot of vegans beans are a gift. It’s nutritious, easy to prepare, versatile and tasty. Chickpeas are my favorite. Mashed, in a salad or in this case combined with greens: Bean meets green.

And when you don’t have time to cook organic canned chickpeas are a lifesaver.

Food facts:

  • Protein, protein, protein….
  • Chickpeas are rich in fibre.
  • They contain magnesium that is important for our muscles.
  • They contain a good amount of calcium.
  • Low GI ( Glycaemic Index) equals constant energy without cravings.
  • Chickpeas stabilize the blood sugar level. They provide you with slow burning energy without disrupting the blood sugar levels.

There are so many ways to prepare chickpeas. Although many of us only might think of dishes such as hummus or falafel I believe they are much more easier to add into any meal.

So let’s bundle the forces. Beans with greens!

    […] Like said, prepare these the exact same way as above. Some people might however prefer a bit thicker pancakes depending on how you want to serve them. I filled these ones with a vegetables tomato mix. Just throw all vegetables you like with an onion in a pan and fry until soft. Add one or two cans of concentrated tomato sauce with some water and fill the pancake with this warm mixture. This is a very tasty and filling dish. You can add some nutritional yeast in the filling for an extra cheese taste and to create a healthy vegan Mexican tortilla taste-a-like. More on the health benefits of chickpeas here. […]
