Happy Sunday, AK fam! I’ve got 22 delicious, protein-packed chickpea recipes for you that you’re going to LOVE. These recipes are some of my absolute favorites. I have some flavorful salads & stir-frys, and even some delicious, healthy treats with sneaky chickpeas baked right in.

Meatless Monday #goals.

I love adding chickpeas into my recipes because they’re an excellent source of plant-based protein. They create an amazing texture in curries & soups, and are an easy add-in for any salads. Plus, they’re SO cheap! We’re talking about $1 for a can of the goods.

If you haven’t tried my chickpea blondies yet, start there. Soft, perfectly sweet, and a must-try.

Take a scroll, pick out a few to prep this week, and feel great with a boost of protein at every meal.

Enjoy, xo!
