Whether you call them by their botanical name cicer arietinum or by their common names — ceci, chickpea, garbanzo, hummus, or chana, I think you’ll agree that they are indeed to most magical of all the beans!

Join me as I celebrate this little legume, whose presence is known and loved in cultures, cuisines, and languages around the world!

About Colleen

Hello, and welcome. I’m Colleen, aka The Joyful Vegan, and I’m here to give you the tools and resources you need to eat, cook, travel, and live compassionately and healthfully. 

Donating = Loving

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
