Farewell to thee, Chickpea!

An Ode to the Chickpea… kind of

Chickpea, so round

In Israel you are frequently found

To Birthrighters you are a novelty

Most Israelis think you’re quite lovely

In hummus and falfel you are used

But I believe you’re quite abused

Your appeal is fading

Your weird smell and texture are quite grating

So farewell to thee,


This blog is not for you

This blog is for something new

It’s time to try Israeli cuisine

That is not made up of the garbanzo bean.
