Should these things be called chick peas or garbanzo beans? Garbanzo is a fun word to say, but chick peas seems more respectful.
More facts to consider.
- Is it a pea or is it a bean? It is a legume, so it's kind of both and neither at the same time.
- "Chick pea" is of Latin origin and "garbanzo" is of Spanish origin. Yet ironically most of these things are consumed in a vegetarian eatery outside Berkeley, California.
So which will it be? U must decide.
