More Chick Pea Recipes

Updated on November 24, 2016

Chick Peas

Chick peas are right at the top of my list of foods that must always be on hand. I keep one can (19oz) in the fridge at all times. Why the fridge, I like them cold. Canned chick peas need to be drained and rinsed twice before using.

Sometimes I will marinate them for 2-3 hours but that all depends upon what I plan to use them for, lime or lemon juice add an interesting flavour.

Chick pea and tuna salad:


1 19 oz can chick peas, drained and rinsed twice

2 6 oz can flaked tuna, drained

6 radishes, sliced thin

1 small onion diced

1 celery stalk sliced thin

ΒΌ medium cabbage, sliced thin as if for cole slaw

Seas salt and black pepper to taste

Dressing of your choice

A sprinkle of vinegar and lime works well, but you could use a blue cheese or balsamic vinaigrette as well.


Place cabbage into salad bowl

Add chick peas


Add tuna

Mix again

add all other ingredients


Season to suit your mood.

    Great topic, particularly because chickpeas are also a prime ingredient in one of my favorite foods, hummus! Thanks for the ideas.
