If you’re like most people, you’ve probably never given much thought to how chick peas — also known as garbanzo beans — come into the world. For most of us, we are familiar with them only once their dried and put in a bag or cooked and put in a can. You may be surprised, then, to learn that they come into the world the way most humans do — alone. Unlike other legumes, most chick peas come in their own little pod. I guess that means they don’t fight much with their siblings while they’re growing up.
