Our fave savory recipe: the fermented feta-like cheeze crumbles, we've been adding them to all of our bowls lately.

Our fave sweet recipe: either the vegan meringues (they're addictive!) or the hasselback pears. oh, OR the pumpkin french toast casserole. all SO good.

  • New in 2023 - all subscribers become part of the Chickpea Subscriber Club, where you're sent bonus content every month via email and online archive. Included: printables, recipes, mini ebooks, and way more. No extra cost/selling or anything, it's just a way to get more out of each issue and get inspired each month. (Think of it like Patreon rewards!) 

Pre-orders for new issues are a necessity for us - without them, we wouldn't be able to pay our printer the large up-front costs of printing issues in bulk. They're great for you, too - you get a 20% discount on your issue total and you're guaranteed an issue in our small, limited runs of printing.

How do pre-orders work? We set up a dedicated pre-order time for about 2 weeks. At the end of that period,  we get the issues printed, which takes anywhere from 4-5 weeks. We then package everything up ourselves and send them out with lots of love, and packing tape.

Please follow us on Instagram to see day-to-day updates on printing, shipping, and issue production.
