Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, are a great source of plant-based protein, fiber, iron, zinc, phosphorus, B vitamins and more. Beets are packed with health-boosting nutrients. Aside from the many vitamins and minerals, they contain betaine which helps fight inflammation; and nitrates which get converted in the body to nitrate oxide – helping relax and dilate your blood vessels, improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure as well as possibly boosting athletic performance.

This makes a great snack or appetizer!
