Organic Chickpea Flour

About

Made from ground chickpeas, this flour is referred to by various names – chickpea flour, garbanzo flour, gram flour, channa flour and besan. It is a very pure flour that has not undergone any chemical bleaching, alcohol treatment and has no additives, anti-bacterial agents or bromate added. It is pale yellow and powdery with an earthy flavour that is best suited to savoury dishes. Chickpea flour is a staple ingredient in many “Old World” cuisines, such as Indian, Turkish, Italian, Spanish and French. When mixed with an equal portion of water, it can be used as an egg replacement in vegan cooking.

Uses

Organic chickpea flour can be used as an egg replacement when mixed with an equal portion of water. This is particularly handy in vegan cooking and baking. It is a wonderful, grain-free thickener for any savoury dish, working well to bind recipes. Chickpea flour is a delicious addition to patties and omelettes, such as this Chickpea Omelette that is a wonderful breakie go-to made without eggs. It is also a useful inclusion in falafel recipes like in this Falafel Nourish Bowl, helping to make the falafel balls crispy on the outside but fluffy on the inside.
