SHEETPAN CHICKPEA and EGG MEDLEY
This is my latest creation…Fast, easy, and full of satiating protein and fiber! It’s perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and all you really need is a can of Chickpeas, eggs, and some spices. 
Some know the Chickpea as a Garbanzo Bean, a popular Middle Eastern food, and both terms are correct. Others don’t know if its a pea or a bean…It’s actually a legume. What many don’t realize is the nutritional magic and the versatility of the Chickpea. Please think beyond your favorite hummus!

With their rich source of vegan protein and dietary fiber, each Garbanzo bean is one step closer to lower blood sugar levels and positive digestive health too! Just 2 cups of chickpeas provide your entire recommended daily value for fiber!

But it gets better! Chickpeas are high in iron, vitamin B-6, magnesium, vitamin K, folate, phosphorous, zinc, copper, manganese, choline, and selenium. Think better sleep; improved memory and nerve transmission; effective DNA synthesis and repair; decreased risk of cancer and heart disease; and effective bone health!

If you aren’t convinced to try a chickpea, today’s your day! This recipe pulls Mexican flavors into the Middle Eastern chickpea, provides a full meal within 30 minutes, and is very affordable and adaptable. Get cooking!
