This Bonefish copycat chickpeas recipe with wilted greens is perfect for when you want something simple, warm, and comforting. It plays well with eggs, fish, and yogurt and works as well for brunch as it does for dinner.

Chickpeas are for way more than just hummus. Originally cultivated in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, have spread their culinary influence across the world. They also come with a range of potential health benefits.

 

Chickpeas are low in fat and a helpful source of zinc, folate, and protein. They are also very high in dietary fiber hence a healthy source of carbohydrates. I love chickpeas in salads or cooked, like in this Bonefish copycat recipe.

 

Cook once, eat four times. We love leftovers, especially when I can pair them up with different dishes and have a “new” meal each time. My favorite four ways of serving this copycat chickpea recipe:

 

  1. Alongside crusted salmon
  2. With runny-yolked eggs
  3. As a toast topper with crumbled goat cheese
  4. Spooned onto Greek yogurt

Chickpea Trivia: In ancient Rome where the chickpea was highly valued, the leader Cicero proudly claimed his name derived from cicer, the Latin term for chickpea. It is believed that one of Cicero’s ancestors was named Cicero because he had a wart on his nose that looked like a chickpea. Who knew?

 

Also, did you know you could replace egg whites with the drained chickpea liquid called aquafaba?  Three tablespoons drained chickpea liquid (each can yields about 1/2 to 3/4 cup) is the equivalent of about 1 egg.

 

It’s a perfect solution for when you’re about to make a cake and you’re out of the eggs, or you’re making a vegan cake. Forget about commercial egg replacers – whip aquafaba for about 15 minutes, until it formes beautiful, egg-worthy stiff peaks.

    These look fabulous! As far as copy cat recipes go in this case you may have improved upon the original so much that they should copy yours:) Haven’t been to Bonefish in forever, wonder what they are serving these days. Have a great week!

      Hi, Colleen! You mean you never had chickpeas aka garbanzo beans or this particular recipe? They are great in salads or cooked and of course, made into hummus. 🙂 Hope you’ll give them a try!

    Jas my husband makes me cook chickpeas for him every chance he gets. He loves them that much so now I can also add variety to his chickpea diet.

      And now you can get them in tins, already cooked! What a time saver. Is he visiting this summer or too busy on the farm?
