Rancho Gordo Black Garbanzo (Ceci Neri). 16oz. Napa, CA
From the Rancho Gordo website: "Known as Ceci Neri in Italy, these rare heirloom legumes have a firm texture and earthy flavor.
Suggestions: salads, soups, stews, casseroles, curries, pasta e fagioli
We've been pursuing Black Chickpeas for years, chasing a memory from an incredible meal in Italy. They 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."
