With chickpeas, a "fiver" could easily become a "twenty-fiver." Chickpeas work in so many dishes, and that doesn't count all the uses of chickpea flour and aquafaba, the water in cans of chickpeas that whips up like egg whites.
You'll find some chickpea classics here--hummus and falafel--that I've included because I've finally discovered reliable ways to make them with maximum taste, texture, and nutrition. I also include a plant-based version of General Tso's Chicken as well as two less familiar dishes in which chickpeas take an important role in an ensemble cast.
