Turning Chickpea Pulp into Toasted Chickpea Fiber Flour
First, collect your leftover chickpea pulp from making high protein chickpea tofu.
Crumble it evenly in a nonstick pan. Cook it over medium heat so that it steams in the pulp’s own moisture for about ten minutes.
As it cooks, the clumps can be easily broken up. And the fiber will start to smell toasty and delicious!
When the pulp is completely dry, you can run it through your blender to break up the particles into fine flour. Then sift it to remove any larger particles remaining.
You can use this fiber to make Chickpea Fiber Buns! They are perfect for keeping your burger meal low in carbs and high in protein while being vegetarian and vegan-friendly.
