If you are like me you probably have a can or two of chickpeas hidden away in one of your kitchen cabinets. Usually they'll find their way into a pot of soup or perhaps be sprinkled on a salad. That's fine, but after reading this beautifully illustrated cookbook, you'll realize you really haven't been doing these innocuous but highly versatile legumes justice.

There are oh so many ways you can incorporate chickpeas into your mealtime menus. Low in calories and high in vitamins, chickpeas can be fashioned into appetizers, side dishes, entrees, and even baked treats.

The 62 recipes found in this book will not only open up your eyes to the possibilities but you'll also discover that in most cases you won't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen transforming that can of chickpeas into something far more tasty and exciting.

Whether it is hummus guacamole, Baba Ganoush or phyllo triangles filled with chickpeas and cheese you'll serve as a starter, or a spicy chickpea and coconut stew, or a rich and colorful Moroccan Mediterranean Tagine for the main course, you'll discover that chickpeas can be a savory addition to any gathering.

You'll never again wonder what to do with that can of chickpeas sitting in the pantry and don't be surprised if you decide you now need to keep on hand a six or eight can pack of them so you never run out!
