Aren’t these the prettiest little things? Green garbanzo beans!
Usually I have to grow these to get them green, but recently I found them at the store. YAY! Indeed, I found these at my local Walmart, which makes me think I am a little behind the times. If Walmart carries them, they must already be old hat in the foodie world, right?
*sniff* But they are so tasty…
Ha! Fooled Ya! As if I care what foods are passé and which are still trendy. Please see Exhibit A: my wide load.
Not that these will make you tubby. (In moderation, of course.) These are healthy, full of green-y goodness, and excellent as a meat substitute. Unless you are trying to take a good, non-blurry, picture of yourself pouring the oil into the pan. At which point you use too much oil.
I think I will survive.
Shall we get this party started?
