Arizona and California family organic. GarbanzoCicer arietinum, also called chickpeas, are plump, round, golden beans that are perfect on salad greens, marinated, and in pasta salads. They are one of the earliest cultivated legumes. Today they are the most consumed bean in the world. With EDEN Tahini, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, garlic, and lemon they make the classic spread/dip, hummus. These versatile, firm, sweet beans are a Mediterranean and Indian staple food where they are used to make falafel and curry dishes. They are great in soup, stew, casseroles, grain burgers, and croquettes. The unseasoned cooking water drained from EDEN garbanzo beans is called aquafaba, which is an ideal egg replacer for vegan desserts, meringues, marshmallows, and more. Aquafaba has the unique ability to mimic the properties of egg whites for use in cooking.
