Ingredients for the sun-dried-tomatoes chickpea lime dip
chickpeas.are the base of this recipe. The garbanzo beans are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They contain a good amount of Manganese (74% of the DV), Folate (71%of the DV), Copper, Iron, Zinc, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Thiamine, Vitamin B6, Selenium, and Potassium. Thanks to the protein and fiber you are going to feel full for a long time. Chickpeas have a lot of health benefits such as managing your blood sugar levels, thanks to the low glycemic index. The fiber may help regulate blood sugar levels. The soluble fiber in chickpeas may help benefit digestion and reduce the risk of colon cancer.
sun-dried tomatoes.are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The concentration of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, is very high. When dried the tomatoes have most of their moisture removed and concentrate their flavor, that’s why they have such a strong taste. Other benefits of sun-dried tomatoes are they support the immune system because they are packed with Vitamin C. They may help your digestive health, because of their soluble and insoluble fiber.
