31 vegetarian chickpea recipes. The mother lode!

I looove chickpeas. I tend to use the tinned version, which means they’re really handy for throwing into dishes to add a bit of protein – the fact that they don’t have a huge amount of flavour on their own means they’ll go with just about anything. Make them Indian, make them Italian, throw them in a soup, mash them up, throw them in the air a few times – whatever you do you’ll end up with something great.

Since I pretty much use chickpeas in everything, I thought it was about time I collected all my chickpea recipes into one place for you. Well, not all of them, or we’d be here forever. I’ve just chosen my favourites, along with some extras from some other awesome food bloggers.

So, here you have it – 31 amazing vegetarian chickpea recipes! Feel free to share your own favourites in the comments, there’s no such thing as too many chickpea recipes.
