A recipe for the Bean Boom
One more thing. As I'm sure you can imagine or know, jarred chickpeas are also another league and a thing in Spain. I used to live in a garbanzo producing region, just outside of Madrid. Perhaps you should go. And definitely try to cook a cocido madrileño. I've had the honour of cooking that with a Spanish abuela 😌👌
You're so right and you literally can't find tinned beans in spain. Have to say though, the tinned are in my opinion a better texture for a quick salad 😉
Fun fact beans are one of the few ingredients that have not been hit by inflation for generations. Beans will save the world!
