Chickpeas are legumes of ancient origin and are cultivated in many areas of the world. The chickpea fruit is contained in the pod of the plant and is irregularly shaped and cream colored. It is a very caloric food rich in carbohydrates, protein, fiber, starch, minerals and vitamins A and C, as well as saponins, substances that help the body eliminate cholesterol. They are also gluten free.

The LuchinoGrappi farm has employed only organic methods since 1992 in the district of Pienza, in the heart of the Val d’Orcia (Valley of Orcia), a region not only renowned for the beauty of its landscape, but also for its balance between nature and human activity. The Grappi farm is a family run enterprise that extends for more than 100 hectares, 85 of which are used to cultivate durum wheat, soft wheat, spelts, oats, and barleys in rotation with broad beans such as chickpeas, lentils, beans and clover. The other 15 are for olive trees and grapes for wine production.

If you are accustomed only to chickpeas from a can, these will take a bit longer to prepare, but the taste difference will be notable. First rinse the chickpeas, then soak for 12 hours or overnight in enough water to cover by 1 inch. Simmer for approximately 3 hours, adding more water as needed. Do not add salt until cooking is complete. They can then be simply served with a drizzle of fine extra virgin olive oil, fresh ground pepper and rosemary. Or they can be added to soups and pasta dishes.

Each package of Mulino Val d’Orcia Organic Chickpeas contains 500g or approximately 1.1 lbs.
