Helpful hints

  • Rinsing the chickpeas reduces sodium. For even lower sodium look for low-sodium canned chickpeas or boil dried chickpeas. 
  • Garam masala is a blend of ground spices commonly used in dishes from India.
  • Bean dishes that replace meat can be worked into most kidney diets. Ask your dietitian for guidance.
