I follow the "Trim Healthy Mama" program and these are a recommended protein source for that diet. I found these to be easy to cook and very tasty in soups, salads and main dishes. The product arrived quickly and was well packed.

(IMO) These have a very mild flavor, but include an allergen warning; processed with equipment for wheat, peanuts, and tree nuts. They do not (IMO) taste like chickpeas (garbanzo beans), having a heavier flavor. I do not consider them to be baby chickpeas. A word of caution when boiling, they foam a great deal. I recommend having a three inch separation above the cooking liquid to the top of the pot.

I like the fact that they can be cooked Al dente, to retain good texture. I believe they double in size when cooked, so the recommended 1/4 Cup dry serving yields 1/2 Cup cooked peas; providing 11 grams of fiber, 7 grams of protein, and only 17 grams of net carbohydrates. Those looking to absorb complex carbohydrates, in lieu of potatoes, rice, or pasta, should try these.

The fiber and Al dente cooking method make them filling; along with slowing their conversion to glucose. They can be eaten plain or in numerous salads, soups, or other dishes; like tofu. Very versatile, but they do not (IMHO) absorb flavors.

Cover with a couple inches of water, bring to a boil, move to the lowest burner (at the lowest setting), and cover tightly for ten minutes. Remove from heat source, remain tightly covered, and allow them to cook for five more minutes. I never add salt or seasonings until after they have been cooked and drained.

It worked great for some recipes I was using, is wonderful mashed like potatoes, just have to soak overnight, and then cook the next day, mash add garlic butter pepper salt, and these are yummy and so much better for you than traditional mashed potatoes!!!!

price was to high for such a small amount, paid almost $10 for a small 2lb bag

Bit pricey, look like yellow split peas, so I'm back to the cheaper "yellow split peas".

I'm giving this a 3 star because I personally dislike the flavor - I much prefer (love) Masoor dahl. But, the quality of this dahl is very good.
