Jenny Chandler, a food blogger and cookbook enthusiast based out of Bristol, actively promotes the use of chickpeas in her articles and recipes. For her, chickpeas are the number one base ingredient for their earthy, nutty creaminess. Chandler also frequently uses chickpea flour or “gram” flour for making farinata or bhaji because it’s low-cost, easy to use and is a great substitute for those with certain food allergies.
