Recipes & Nutrition Analysis for Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)

The new School Meal Pattern requires schools to serve 1/2 cup of legumes per week for all grades K-12. (Note: larger amounts may be served.)

A half cup of cooked pulses is equivalent to 1 serving of vegetables and a two-ounce meat equivalent.  (Beans and peas can be counted as either a vegetable or a protein food.)  (www.choosemyplate.gov)
