Here at Banza, we're obsessed with food. And we believe you shouldn't have to choose between healthy and tasty. Which is where our chickpea love story begins...

Banza Beet Pesto

Our co-founder Brian invented the first version of Banza in his tiny kitchen in 2013. He was just playing around with one of his favorite foods - chickpeas, trying to make a better version of pasta.

His goal was to recreate the traditional pasta experience he craved, while using a highly nutritious (and very delicious) legume. Banza chickpea pasta has 2x the protein, 4x the fiber and nearly ½ the net carbs of traditional noodles.

Our overall mission is to take other staple foods that people love and make them better, by using more nutritious ingredients. We have a lot of love for legumes, and we’re excited that International Year of the Pulses is helping to spread that love!

We wanted to share some fun Banza recipes.
