Chickpeas aka garbanzo beans contain significant amount of fiber, which helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood, thereby decreasing the risk of heart disease. They’re also great source for protein BUT here’s what’s most fascinating about chickpeas – after you the boil chickpeas – the water is called ‘aqua faba’. Aqua Faba is a great replacement for eggs. You can use the water when you’re getting ready to whip up your next baking project. So the next time you open a can of chickpeas, don’t pour the liquid down the drain, but stash it in the fridge.
