What is the difference between garbanzo beans or chickpeas salad?

In short, they are the same thing- the same legume. The term “chickpea” is used more by English speakers, while the term “garbanzo” came from the Spanish language and used more in European countries. No matter what you call it, chickpeas are packed with fiber, protein and contain minerals and vitamins. The nutty taste and grainy texture of chickpeas pair well with other ingredients and foods (like this salad).


Benefits of Chickpea

  • Low in calories– 46 per 1 ounce
  • Fiber – slows the rate that sugar is absorbed into the bloodstream.
  • Protein– essential for the muscles, cartilage, skin, bones, and blood.
  • Iron– need to carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
  • Manganese– promotes healthy nerve and brain function.

Chickpeas are super easy to incorporate into these recipes, too:
