    What would you use this with/for? No pitta bread on Keto - so what?

    Try parmesan chips or sesame crackers! Or better still celery sticks

    I understand that chickpeas are much higher in carbohydrates than edamma beans. so for low carb i totally agree. But chickpeas really do have more protein...
    And not the other way around.

    That is incorrect information for cooked chickpeas (the only way they are consumed). The higher protein amount is for 100 grams of uncooked chickpeas. When cooked, chickpeas absorb a lot of water, which increases their volume and decreases their protein concentration. Canned chickpeas are also cooked. Hummus uses cooked chickpeas (whether canned or fresh), which contain about 9 grams of protein per cup. Normally a recipe nutrition information is based on the raw weight of a food but in this case, we do specify cooked chickpeas.

    The USDA entry for cooked chickpeas: https://fdc.nal.usda.gov/fdc-app.html#/food-details/173756/nutrients.
