In Terramagne-America, there is a company of several multicultural women that's making packets of crispy chickpeas in different flavors. The Hot Chicks are extra-spicy, the Saucy Chicks are milder, and the Sweet Chicks are sugary. The promotional characters are baby chickens dressed as bikers on the Hot Chicks, while the Saucy Chicks have more eclectic "go out and have fun" outfits, and the Sweet Chicks are dolled up in pink. So cute, I wish I could draw these.

Chickpeas are big rounded legumes. They offer protein, fiber, and other benefits. When roasted, they make a healthy snack that can be flavored in various ways. You can do many other things with them too.

Living in an area with a large subcontinent Asian community, I can find so many good things being done with chick peas! :o)

I've always been team hummus with my chickpeas, but I need to keep telling myself to use them for other things like bean salads or protein bowls and whatnot. Especially since I keep forgetting to put time aside to make the hummus and just buy it premade! Ugh.

I've never been able to make humas (Really haven't tried) so we just by it premade. Thankfully it's a readily available thing.

Also glad! Though the way everyone describes it, making it is super easy and since it ferments so readilt, it guarantees I can maximize the life out of it, so I keep adding it to my to do list and keeps getting forgotten, sigh.

yes it is rather easy!

here are a few step by step links with video!

this one from Kitchen Daddy:

this one from Inspired Taste:

this one from Lina's Kitchen:

you can adjust the proportions of each ingredient as you see fit, the basic ingredients of hummus are:

Tahini paste (you can make this from scratch or use store bought) between 2 tablespoons and a quarter cup
chick peas (either soaked, boiled, cooled, and drained or canned, drained, and rinsed)ranges depending on amount of dip being made and whether you are using bulk dry chick peas or canned from one can (usually 16 or 20 oz cans) up to 3 pounds of dried chick peas
lemon juice ranges from a sprinkling to the juice of a whole lemon
garlic ranges from 1 or 2 cloves to an entire bulb...sometimes roasted often just left raw
olive oil (garnish) drizzle
paprika (garnish) dash

You use a food processor to combine and blend all of the ingredients into a paste, if you want a thinner hummus you can use a bit of water either fresh or reserved from the cooking process to do so.

spices, seasonings, and additions are limitless here and can be adjusted to suit your tastes.
