The grass pea is recognized as a traditional Italian agri-food product, an ancient symbol of a poor and peasant cuisine.
A legume similar to the chickpea, but rougher and with sharper edges, shaped like a pebble, with a more intense flavor.
Hagrinen Dehusked Grass Peas are quick to cook and ideal for creams and purees.
Excellent also in soups, broths, or served alongside many typical Italian dishes.
Easy to digest because the substances that cause bloating are removed with the outer husk.
In Italy there are many grass pea festivals: the most famous is held in November in Serra De’ Conti, in the Marche region.
