Chickpeas are a fundamental ingredient of the Mediterranean diet and their origin is very ancient.
They are tasty, versatile in the kitchen and healthy legumes. They have small dimensions and a hazelnut color and are characterized by a high digestibility.
They are an excellent source of alternative proteins to those of animal origin, which makes them indispensable for those who follow vegetarian or vegan diets. Chickpeas are particularly used in Middle Eastern cuisine but are also the main ingredient of many traditional dishes of southern Italy. Reduced into flour or cooked whole, they lend themselves to the creation of dishes with an intense flavor, from Panelle and Farinata to the simplest soups and irreplaceable pasta and chickpeas. This legume has the ability to adapt to the most impervious climatic conditions and does not require large quantities of water to grow.
The plants are small in size and organic cultivation allows you to maintain the flavor of ancient times.
