Ceci are a must have to cook many real Italian dishes. It’s mild, nutty taste is perfect on its one, but equally contributes to pasta sauces. Additionally it’s a great and healthy protein source!

For more than ten years Agripeppers have been producing products typical of their region, Basilicata, in the South of Italy.
As the name suggests, Agripeppers’ specialty are peppers and specifically the famous Peperoni Cruschi. Additionally, the family business also offers a variety of dried herbs and beans.

Chickpeas should be pre-soaked in water, as it makes them easier to digest, reduces their cooking time and improves their texture.
To do this, pile the the dried chickpeas in water for 8 to 10 hours. Then wash them under running water and cook the chickpeas for 2 to 3 minutes. Add some garlic, rosemary and salt for a more intense taste.
In Italy, we use chickpeas for soups or simply add them on top of Crostini. Delicious!
Our Ceci do not contain any allergens.
