On Meatless Monday, we know how important it is to get your protein fix at lunch so you can stay full and energized until the end of the day. One of the easiest, most versatile and delicious ways to do that is with garbanzo beans, or as many people know them, chickpeas! Chickpeas are jam-packed with protein and fiber and are super versatile --- blend 'em smooth, form them into patties or leave them whole. Plus, their neutral taste can easily pick up any combination of flavors and spices. And while we adore 'em in hummus, we had to recommend a few more creative takes on chickpeas, too!
