Morrisons Chick Peas In Water
Advantages: Tasty, nutritious and reasonably priced
Disadvantages: None at all unless you don't like chickpeas of course!
We all have foods I guess that we buy weekly! I once lived with an avid Vegetarian and although I didn't become one myself I did learn alot about different foods and what I liked and disliked (yes I'm looking at you polenta lol!).
One thing I do love is chickpeas. I like to add them to stews, curries allsorts and yep I buy a can at least weekly. Not only do I think they taste great but they also bulk out meals I create and in a healthy way as chickpeas are known to be low in saturated fat and very low in cholestarol and sodium whilst being a very good source of fibre, protein and copper, folate an magnese! I eat them not only cos I love the taste of them but also because they are a way of me healthy eating as well!
The Morrisons ones come in a basic looking white coloured can now since there labelling on their budget range is less garish and they cost 68p for a 410g can. On that can of course we are told that they are plainly and information such as ingredients and nutritonal information as well as cooking instructions are given and so on.
These chickpeas are absoloutely great. Anyone who knows about chickpeas will know that dried you have to let them soak overnight and so on and me, well I can't be bothered with all that faffing about to be honest. These are small white peas, hard and smooth in texture small and in water and all you have to do with them is pop the whole of the contents of the can into a saucepan and heat them gently for a few minutes and then to serve them just drain the water off. Me though I always add mine to dishes as I explained earlier so like I say I make a curry up and add a sauce thats when I add these and let them cook with the rest of it gently for a while as I don't want to be eating chickpeas on there own afterall!
These are great! They are a nice size, have a nice texture to them not being too mushy or anything and when cooking with them they stay firm and true and within dishes they even soak up other flavours which is great. These are not salty or sweet and not once do I found them to lose their outer shell which can look unsightly as well as the skin being a bit plasticky!
All in all for the price I think they are excellent and easy and ready to use, just heat and serve and your done. I can use less of other ingredients and use this to bulk out a meal and I love em so well done Morrisons!
Only available in Morrisons stores.
Summary: A very good buy from Morrisons once again!
