Incredibly excitingly, Norfolk farmer Henry Raker harvested the first ever field-scale crop of British chickpeas last summer. They're now cleaned, packed up, and ready to found as part of our new collection of sustainable British grains and pulses.
Chickpeas are nutrient-dense and rich in amino acids. They are a wonderful ingredient to use if you are wanting to make a meal stretch a little further, while still providing so much nutritional value.
To celebrate our new range of British grains and pulses we have created a series of mouthwatering recipes, like this one for 'Lamb Loin with Chickpeas & Wild Garlic'.
A classic combination, lamb and chickpeas, this time with a wonderful seasonal punch from vibrant wild garlic. Spring has officially sprung with this moreish recipe.
