I know, you wanted to see some more macarons...but you'll have to wait for those! I just had to get this post up while fresh chickpeas are still in season! For those of you in the area, I spotted them at Russo's this past weekend, but they've also been seen at Indian stores.
At first I had no idea what to do with them, but I opened one up to reveal green chickpeas! When I came across a recipe for a Fresh Garbanzo Salad with Mango, I knew the fate of my little green brains :) Check out the recipe at cate's world kitchen!
I brought this side dish to a friend's house for lunch, and everyone really enjoyed it. The salad was delicious, and a hit with my friends, but next time I pick these up, I might just wind up eating them like edamame!
Have you ever tried fresh chickpeas?? If so, how did you prepare them?
