Cooking vegetables at home is a virtuous activity that we will never stop recommending.
However, we are not ashamed to admit that sometimes we resort to canned ones: they are practical for an emergency, they work very well in certain preparations —see this extra-thin hummus—, and they fall into the category of healthy processed foods.
In the supermarket we can find different qualities of packaged chickpeas, ranging from creamy to replica shot.
To make the right choice, we asked an expert to blindly taste nine brands: Marc Puig-Pey, head of cooking at the Alícia Foundation and promoter of the fantastic book
La cocina de las legumes
If you want to know which one won and which one lost, just watch the video above.
