Chickpeas from Colfiorito. A regional Umbrian product 400g
Grown in Colfiorito, a small town in the centre of Umbria, these Casale 1485 chickpeas were selected because of their small size, smooth skin and rounded shape, different from the more common “Cicer arietinum,” a bigger, rough chickpea.
Tender and savoury, high in proteins and low in fat, utterly tasty. Moreover, Casale1485 chickpeas keep their peels whole and are always good-looking after cooking. Great with pasta e ceci (chickpea pasta, a very traditional Italian recipe), in a soup with some pancetta, vegetarian cous cous, hummus.
