The ancient, knobby chickpea is a beloved staple across the globe, including the Middle East, India, Africa, and Europe. And rightfully so! These beans are incredibly versatile, adding creamy body to soups, curries, salads, rice, and pasta. What’s more, they can be transformed into hummus, falafel, or a crunchy snack.

Use a pressure cooker

Skip the pre-soak step

Salt early and liberally

Plant protein: Boost your plant-based protein intake, naturally. One cup of cooked beans provides ~16 g of protein (varies by bean).

Lots of fiber: Beans have an impressive 12-20 grams of fiber per cup (varies by bean). Fiber helps keep your cholesterol levels at bay and your digestion in check ;)

Sustained energy: The complex carbs in beans keep your blood sugar levels steady, helping you feel energized for hours.

Key nutrients: High in iron, zinc, folate, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants (oh my!), beans have everything you need to feel healthy and happy daily.

Sourcing notes

Montana’s Golden Triangle region is famous for its ability to produce exceptional high-protein wheat. Farms have relied on important soil enhancing and conservation techniques passed down through generations– drought-resistant crops, cover crops, and crop rotations made possible by none other than the nitrogen-fixing bean.

Our partner, Jeff Bangs of Prairie Sun Farms, says his great-grandmother arrived to farm the land more than 100 years ago, and 4 generations later the family is still going strong. Jeff grows his crops organically and found that his tiny Chickpea variety is not only delicious, but a soil-conditioning powerhouse.

2020 Montana Chick Peas

I’ve been vegetarian for 30 years, and the last 5 years I’ve enjoyed a plant-based diet. Beans are an important part of my diet, and I’ve eaten lots of beans and chick peas over the decades. These little Montana chick peas are some of the finest I’ve ever eaten! They are so silky smooth, sumptuous, special and even sexy, in appearance, texture and flavor! They are truly pearls of delicious nutrition. These 2020 Montana chick peas will produce an endless variety of chick pea salads escalated to another (gourmet) level. Do yourself a favor and try some, and impress your family and friends with the greatest chick pea dishes they’ve ever tasted.

Best hummus ever

Made fresh homemade hummus from these.
The beans themselves tasted great and the hummus came out smooth and silky.

SO good

I love these chickpeas!!!! The smaller size is perfect, and they taste so nutty and fresh. I’ve always soaked my beans before cooking, but since these are recently harvested soaking isn’t necessary. Saves me so much time! I will definitely be buying again and again!

I loved these chickpeas!

I made a salad with goat cheese, dates, Persian cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. that was amazing. Then a stew with chorizo. My family and I loved them!
