Another delicious vegetable I like to eat is fresh chickpeas. Are? The grammar in that sentence is all wrong. Anyway, these are delicious. I cook them like edamame and they taste kind of similar, very fresh and green and a little salty if you salt them. Inside their little shells, they look like little brains. Gross, but so delicious.
1 lb fresh chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
a steamer basket
water for steaming
Heat a pot with an inch of water to boiling, and place the steamer basket in it. Dump in all the chickpeas, cover, and let cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the basket, toss with salt, and eat. To eat - open up the little pods and eat the guts. Yum!
