6 Deliciously Unconventional Chickpea Recipes Perfect for Summer!

Chickpeas are a great source of all things good for you! From folic acid to manganese, fibre and protein, these tiny beans are healthful superheros! There are surprisingly many ways to get them into your diet without dipping a pita in hummus (not to say hummus isn't delicious, but it's fun to mix it up sometimes!) 1) Smashed Chickpea and Avocado Sandwich  This Instagram ready sandwich is loaded with the bright and fresh taste of fatty acid rich avocados, spinach and cucumbers. Swap out the cheese for a vegan alternative that still packs powerful nutritional punches! 2) Vegan Spanakopita  Light and flaky, this cheese-less twist on a Greek classic is healthily devine! It's loaded with antioxidants and a garlic chickpea filling for full body flavour in a pastry! 3) Pumpkin Pie Bars  Only 100 calories and protein packed, this rich and nutrient dense treat is going to shock you (in a good way)! Chickpeas make a surprising appearance to add protein goodness to the bars. 4) Lemony Egg in a Spinach Nest  Summery and sunny, this recipe's prep time is only 5 minutes but the savoury wholesomeness and nutrient goodness last and last. It's ultra-protein rich and zesty! Oh and if you still need convincing, it gives you two servings of veggies to start your day with! 5) Minty Yogurt Parfait This one sounds a little far fetched, right? I mean how could chickpeas tie into this rich and creamy treat? Well this is a more savoury take on traditional parfaits, using minted Greek yogurt, cooked chickpeas and the power of brain-healthy walnuts! 6) Roasted Radish and Chickpea Tacos A summer street food favourite comes alive in your kitchen with chickpeas and detox-inducing, immune boosting, good digestion promoting radishes!
