  1. As a kid growing up in Northern Lebanon, I would buy a bunch of fresh chickpeas off a street vendor, who would have them all piled up high on a cart. My friends and I would sit on a bench picking the green chickpeas and eating it raw. A much healthier snack than the ones kids eat these days. Your photo brought back some precious memories. Thank you 🙂

    1. They are delcious, not common fresh, a very short season here. Visit here Sundays Jovina http://www.di-ve.com/lifestyle/note-heart-mediterranean-week-june

    1. Good morning Fae, fresh chick peas are an unusual ingredient. on the island, the season is short. i will be posting my recipe today but you can simply toss them in a salad, they are delicious and full of vitamins. i tossed them into a plate of warm pasta right at the end so that they keep their color and crispness. I will be posting the recipe today. Did you have a look at my post on di-ve news? http://www.di-ve.com/lifestyle/note-heart-mediterranean-week-june ? have a lovely day !

      1. Good Morning, Lea,
        – I’m sorry I did not mention it. Yes, I did. You have met many people and covered quite a bit of subjects. I am interested to know the recipe you are going to post for rabbit too.
        – So, I can use fresh chickpeas raw, as I do with fresh raw green peas! Fantastic!

      2. Absolutely. I will be posting it today Fae! So appreciate hearing your comments !

  5. I’ve never seen fresh chickpeas here in London – although I will look out for them now. They look great.

    1. Thank you so much, i am just finishing a post with a recipe !
