Chickpeas (ceci) are a precious food of the Mediterranean diet. Casa Corneli’s chickpeas are incredibly rich, savory, and satisfying with a firm texture. The dried beans can be soaked overnight and simmered in water with aromatics until tender, then used in a variety of dishes. Chickpeas are the perfect staple to keep on hand for use in soups, salads, and stews.
In Umbria, chickpeas are traditionally eaten in brothy soups drizzled with olive oil and served with a slice of bruschetta (toasted bread). Casa Corneli also suggests pairing their chickpeas with steamed clams.
