Chickpeas, an Armenian Staple.

This article is bound to make you hungry.

Is there a more nearly perfect food than the chickpea?

(No fair if you answered “ice cream.” That’s just too easy!)

Really, it’s hard to think of anything so nutritious that can be prepared in so many delicious ways, or just gobbled down all by itself.

No matter what region or village, the Armenian menu features chickpeas in every imaginable form: floating in soups, nestled in salads and even shaped into a main dish centerpiece in place of meat.
