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.
