  1. Sorry if this is a dumb question but. What are
    Sprouted Black Chickpeas / Garbanzo Peas
    ?
    Googled it but I’m not sure? Are there black Chickpeas? I’m confused πŸ˜€

    1. Hi Jule! πŸ™‚ Dont worry thats not at all a dumb question. They aren’t Garbanzo Peas…these are just half the size and dark brown in colour as I showed in my pics. Anyhow, you can make the same dish using garbanzo beans too. Hope this helps.
