Fresh Chickpeas

Fresh chickpeas are a great source of protein, calcium, zinc, and folate.  They possess high levels of dietary fiber and they taste great!  Fresh chickpeas have a taste similar to the bean in a fresh green bean with an extra little nutty kick.

What do you do with them?  Toss a couple handfuls in a salad to make it a meal.  Or, saute them gently in butter for a lovely side dish.  Tossed with brown butter and pasta, they make a wonderfully hearty meal.   Or, roast them like chestnuts in the oven.  I’ll be trying this tonight.
