Great to have organic chick peas, and very good value for them. I've used these in salads, curries and to make my own hummus. They work well in everything.Reviewer's Name:

It's well worth stocking up on tins like these as a standby for the end of the week, it's really quick to just warm them up with some herbs and veg, or even whip up a hummous and have that with bread and raw veg.Reviewer's Name:

Try slicing 500g carrots in half lenghtways, then combine with a drained tin of chick peas, 2 tablespoons olive oil and 1/2 tbsp turmeric. Transfer to a baking dish and roast in a preheated oven at 180 degrees/gas 4 for 20 mins, until the carrots are tender. Sprinkle generously with freshly chopped coriander leaves to serve as a side dish.Reviewer's Name:
