Black Garbanzo Bean
Known as Ceci Neri in Italy, these rare heirloom legumes have a firm texture and an irresistible earthy, nutty flavor.
Black Garbanzos are much denser than classic Garbanzos, making them ideal for salads, stews, or even baked dishes. The skins are thicker but they are not chewy or tough, just a little more interesting.
We've been pursuing Black Chickpeas for years, chasing a memory from an incredible meal in Italy. We are happy to offer these to you, grown in California, but (we think) just as incredible as the Italian-grown version.
Very popular in many regions in Italy, including Puglia, where they are enjoyed as zuppa di ceci neri (black chickpea soup).
