These are fresh chickpeas, or garbanzo beans which we bought at a farmer's market. They're so cute I just had to buy them, the bean is about the size of an English garden pea, each one tucked away in it's own little hull. The woman who I bought them from said that people boil or steam them and eat them like edamame, which is fine, but I thought that since I had a wealth of knowledgeable foodies at my fingertips, I'd ask you. Has anyone out there had the pleasure of cooking these? What would you do with them? I'm thinking of steaming and then roasting for some added sweetness.
