I’m all about this new Chickpea & Ground Turkey Chili recipe! I whipped this recipe up one night when I was craving chili and nothing else would do…You know that kind of craving, don’t you? But the chili I usually make has black, red, pinto, or kidney beans onions, and garlic, which is not Low FODMAP.
I grabbed my Low FODMAP guidelines and set out to take care of my craving and create a whole new chili recipe.
Now I happily eat this chili weekly, and sometimes twice a week; once as a chili dog. Talk about a tasty meal, and I don’t miss the black, pinto, and red beans as much as I thought I would.
Have you noticed how popular chickpeas also known as garbanzo beans are lately? And I don’t mean just whipped up as hummus…
Chickpeas pack a decent amount of protein and fiber as well as vitamins and minerals.
Note** Before you throw away the liquid from the chickpeas/garbanzo beans read this:
- If you like egg-free recipes, the liquid from the canned garbanzo beans is a fantastic egg substitute in baking.
- Every time I open a can of chickpeas I save the liquid in small containers to freeze so it’s always on hand.
- Three tablespoons of the liquid equal one egg in baking.
Every spoonful of chickpea and ground turkey chili is hearty and satisfying. It might just surprise you the number of healthy ingredients I added to this recipe, in fact, I think you could call it “superpower chili!”
Serve your chickpea chili with or without grated cheese. We enjoy ours with freshly baked cornbread.
The small amount of added red lentils and quinoa provide extra fiber and nutrients to this easy Low FODMAP chili, and no one will even notice because they don’t change the flavor at all. Quinoa and lentils are filling and low-calorie too.
