Canned or dried chickpeas are arguably one of the best items to have in your pantry. They're shelf-stable, easy to cook with and can be used in so many different delicious dishes. YouTube star Laura Vitale uses the tasty legume to prepare three great garbanzo-filled recipes: baked falafel, chickpea and tuna salad and Italian vegetable and chickpea stew.
Traditional falafel is one of my favorite things in the world. This recipe is a much lighter, healthier version that satisfies my cravings without all the deep-frying mess.
This dish reminds me of some of my best summer days on the Amalfi coast. It's so light, bright and flavorful — not to mention quick to prepare!
I love this recipe because it is so versatile. I never make this stew the same twice — it's always changing based on what I have on hand and it always comes out delicious! It's comforting and filling but also light.
