(COSTA RICA EXTRA) Chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) are the main ingredient for this nutritious, wholesome snack! Like most legumes, chickpeas have long been renowned for their fiber content, and they also make a great vegan protein source.

They are a staple in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine, and for good reason. They’re cheap, nutritious, and keep you feeling full long after you’ve eaten.
