One of the most versatile beans! I cook and use them in so many things from hummous to soups to stews and even make spreads out of them. They have a firm texture in the mouth unlike most beans that are on the soft side and squishy, but they turn easily in to a paste if needed by using a little oil.

Excellent chickpeas - Sun 26th Mar 2017

Great quality chickpeas and so much nicer than any other tinned chickpeas I have tried and I eat a lot of chickpeas. Ideal for using in a curry or a salad and of course Hummus.

Perfect for a quick meal on the go - Fri 21st Oct 2016

Always useful to have some stored away to bulk out a meal

Tasty - Mon 25th Jul 2016

Tasty and cooked to perfection.

- Thu 4th Feb 2016

Good quality chick peas for when you can't be bothered to soak and cook your own!

- Sat 22nd Aug 2015

I am always dubious about tinned items and more so about chickpeas, which I use often. I wasn't disappointed and annoyed at having to boil again. These chickpeas were cooked through and so were easy to use straight away. Hassle-free for me.

Mash chickpeas with lemon juice, curry spices, plain yoghurt and mayo. Mix in a few sultanas and use to fill jacket potatoes or sandwiches.

Coronation Chickpea - Mon 25th May 2015

Delicous, great in so many veggie dishes!

Perfect - Wed 18th Dec 2013

Soft yet firm enough, very hearty and wholesome tasting - they blend easily or cook well whole. I love making various soups with these.

- Mon 2nd Dec 2013

They seem a little undercooked, but they taste fine.

- Fri 5th Jul 2013

Delicious, I eat them from the can added to a quinoa salad. Great price for an organic item.

Review of Biona Organic Chickpeas in Water - Tue 9th Apr 2013

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.

Nutrition - Fri 4th Jan 2013

Good for fibre, calcium, iron and zinc. Creamy coloured, round, nutty and used widely in Middle Eastern cuisine. Ideal for a speedy hummus but delicious straight from the can too!

Super - Thu 15th Nov 2012

Chick peas can be cooked in a variety of ways, and adding a little spice to it will transform it in to a beautiful mouthwatering appetiser, meal or snack.

- Tue 23rd Oct 2012

Perfect for hummus - I tried the recipe left by an other reviewer which was perfect!

- Mon 27th Aug 2012

These do the job really well. Home-made houmous is so easy to make and tastes so much better than buying it!

- Sun 24th Jun 2012

Love hummus, and great for having this tin around and also I enjoy making a yummy spicy curry with it.

- Tue 18th Jan 2011

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.

Tips

- Mon 13th Jul 2015

Try a simple salad of chickpeas, cooked quinoa, chopped celery and parsley. For a lovely dressing mix 125 ml orange juice, 1 tbsp white wine vinegar, 2 tbsp olive oil, a pinch of ground cumin and some freshly grated ginger to taste.

Try... - Wed 23rd May 2012

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.
