  • The dish is a rich meat and vegetable stew-like dish, often slow cooked
  • Tagine is a traditional Moroccan dish

Chickpeas Please!

A main ingredient in this dish is the chickpea, also known as the garbanzo bean.

Chickpeas, like other legumes are high in protein and contain a substantial amount of fiber. MyPlate classifies chickpeas as as plant-based source of protein. This category includes beans, lentils, nuts, seeds and soy products. To learn more about other plant based sources of protein, visit MyPlate’s website!
