Benefits of Chickpeas

Chickpeas are real powerhouses and should definitely be part of your diet. They are rich in protein and fiber, low in fat, and keep you full for a long time. Plus, they are naturally gluten-free and a healthy alternative to pasta or other grains in summer salads.

Here are a few of my favorite recipes with chickpeas:

Greek Chickpea Salad Ingredients
  • Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans): The quickest option is canned chickpeas. For dried chickpeas, soak them overnight and cook according to the package instructions.
  • Tomatoes, Cucumber, Red Onion, Bell Pepper: Crunchy and healthy veggies! Use ripe tomatoes like plum tomatoes or cherry tomatoes. I like to use mini sweet peppers because they are a bit milder in taste.
  • Olives: For a salty touch. Best to use pitted Kalamata olives.
  • Feta: Adds a creamy, cheesy flavor.
  • Fresh Parsley: For garnish. Fresh dill also tastes great.
  • Greek Salad Dressing: A mild mix of extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, dried oregano, pepper, salt, and garlic.

Vegan Version

For a vegan version of this Greek Chickpea Salad, you can either omit the feta or easily make a dairy-free feta alternative at home. Use my recipe for vegan feta cheese. Super easy, delicious, and 100% plant-based! Just make sure to prepare the tofu feta at least 24 hours in advance to allow the flavors to meld together beautifully.

Unfortunately, I haven’t found any store-bought vegan feta alternative that is enjoyable. Therefore, I recommend making it yourself.
