Chickpea

The chickpea or garbanzo bean (Cicer arietinum) is an edible pulse of the Leguminosae or Fabaceae family, subfamily Faboideae[?] or Papilionoideae[?]. The plant can also be used as a green vegetable.

Chickpeas can be eaten raw in salads, cooked in stews or ground into a paste called hummus.
