El Maragato gourmet garbanzos (chick-peas) are from Castilla--León, and are grown along the medieval pilgrimage route El Camino de Santiago. They are radically superior to their bland cousins you find in the local supermarket. La Tienda is the exclusive source of these exceptional beans in the United States.
When you soak these garbanzos overnight, you will be astonished to see how they swell into plump, exquisite beans.
El Maragato is the premiere source of artisan quality beans in Spain -- if you choose these garbanzos you will immediately recognize that theirs is not an idle boast. A customer of ours wrote an enthusiastic letter extolling Maragato as the "ultimate garbanzo."
In Spain, the popularity of Cocido de Garbanzos, Garbanzo Stew, rivals that of paella and gazpacho, and is the precursor of a French pot-au-feu. These premium beans are the perfect base for a pot of Cocido, brimming with authentic Spanish flavor. Your glorious garbanzos will be stewing in a broth containing chorizo, and perhaps morcilla black sausage with onions.
