Fresh Chickpeas

Chickpeas are one of those ingredients, they're what I reach for when my pantry is looking a little bare, you can put them in almost anything and because of their mild flavour, they just seem to know how to get along with all kinds of flavours. Fresh chickpeas on the other hand, are the star of the show. As with most peas, they require a small amount of work, plucking them from their little shells, but in my opinion, their sweet, almost nutty flavour is well worth the effort! Try them steamed in their shells finished with chili and lime just like mexican edamame, sauteed with onions and garlic, they're even delicious raw, tossed into a grain based salad. We've just received our first shipment of fresh chickpeas, they're available in the store, so come and get 'em!
