Hi. I have 3 kids (8,6 and 2) and a fairly fussy husband when it comes to food. In the shop the other day I was feeling brave and adventurous and bought a couple of tins of chickpeas. However, I am not sure what to do with them! I have searched online and found lots of curry recipes, but was wondering if anyone had any other ideas of how to cook/hide them in something yummy! We are 90% veggie (kids and DH have meat once a week) and I want to make sure we get enough of everything, especially as DD1 is suffering with constipation at the moment.
I saw this the other day and bookmarked it to try—it looks a bit fiddly but possibly delicious:
But our favourite standbys are just an easy curry—onions, garlic, ginger, & tomatoes for the base; curry spices; chickpeas and potatoes—or a chickpea-and-rice salad (chickpeas, cooked rice, whatever raw or roasted veggies you like, a few herbs, a mustardy vinaigrette dressing, a sprinkling of cheese if you fancy).
There was a really yummy looking chickpea and sweet potato stew recipe in recent Greenparent issue. I meant to copy it down but have just given the issue away!
We’re having chick pea patties for tea which are yummy with salad and sweet chilli sauce. DH found recipe on the interweb somewhere. There are a few but we do an oven baked one.

Oh the biscuits sound great. I’m not sure you can wrong with hummus either!

Seconding chickpea patties, this is the recipe I use http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/5605/ though I prefer it with Tzatziki (yum).

Falafel, Chickpea patties, hummus, spicy chickpeas with rice, in a couscous salad with red pepper and salad onion, with rocket, lemon juice and sausage as a pasta sauce or add to a stew.
Moroccan style, in a vegetable tagine: they are delicious. I have also stir-fried them with noodles and made the ubiquitous curries and hummus with them.
