Chick peas also can be ground up and used as a flour called gram flour. They may be used in this fashion to make falafel, or to make a variant of tofu made by the people of Burma. It is usually known as Burmese tofu.
Chick peas are an excellent nutritional choice. A serving of chick peas has about 4 ounces (113.39 g) or half a cup has about 17 grams of dietary fiber and 19 grams of protein. They are also considered more digestible than most other beans.
So before I went Vegan like or plant-strong(happy) I ate chickpeas only in salad and hummus. NOW I have ground them up to make a mock "tuna".
blend 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas with 1 peeled and pitted and sliced avocado then add 1/2 cup and 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar and some minced garlic.. I don't use oil.. but you could add oil, cumin and a little sea salt. I love ground pepper with mine.
I make a hummus with chickpeas with roasted carrots.. I had never heard of it.. until a facebook friend posted her recipe... and I really enjoyed the new flavor.. I usually add roasted red peppers.
I also braise cooked chickpeas with onions and tomatoes and kale and serve over quinoa or couscous.
I love to saute swiss chard with minced garlic and I always toss some chickpeas with it... to make a side dish....
