Banza Rice Made from Chickpeas. Your beloved pantry staple is now a powered up, protein-packed, mealtime go-to. With 2x the protein, 35% fewer net carbs, and 5x the fiber, don’t even think about calling this a side dish (I mean… it is, but you know what we mean). Infused with garlic thyme oil, this chickpea rice comes with a flavor packet of dried spices and herbs that pack in twice the flavor, while using half the sodium.
