THE BENEFITS ‘Chickpeas are a filling, fibrous legume full of iron, magnesium, calcium, zinc and vitamin K, meaning they’re good for bone health,’ says Bond. ‘Plus, they contain B vitamins, which help convert food into energy.’
HOW TO EAT THEM ‘They’re the main ingredient of hummus, so buy a tub (or make your own). Raw chickpeas can take an age to cook, but the tinned variety are great for throwing into a curry,’ adds Bond.
