Chickpeas are such a versatile thing in the kitchen: You can eat them hot or cold, canned or dried, and they can act as the star of the meal, or a support. You can roast chickpeas and add them to salads, use them as a substitute for croutons in soups, or turn them into a simple snack with big flakes of sea salt. And of course you can always purée them straight from the can to create silky-smooth hummus (the best).

Is there anything the mighty chickpea can't do? These 17 recipes highlight this kitchen staple in all its varied and delicious roles.
