Chickpeas are legumes with great nutritional value and are a representative sample of the greek mediterranean diet.
They are rich in protein, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, B vitamins and vitamin K. They also have a low glycemic index, i.e. while they are rich in carbohydrates, they do not raise blood sugar. They also contain a lot of fibre like gigantes.
The amount of legumes produced in the area of Feneos is very small. For this reason, "Dikotilon" collaborates with specific producers in Thessaly who embrace the same values.
Greek cuisine includes various dishes with these legumes such as chickpeas lemon soup, chickpeas with rice, "revithada" which is the traditional dish of Sifnos, salad with chickpeas, braised chickpeas, chickpeas balls.
