This dish is full of a variety of nutrients! Chickpeas are full of protein, fiber and iron. Among other things, iron is important for blood formation and oxygen transport in the body. Additionally, the tahini is rich in vitamin E, which helps protect the cells from free radicals.

If you want to control the salt content of this dish, use dried chickpeas instead of buying canned chickpeas.
