If these chickpeas could talk, they'd probably be a little fresh and need at least a PG-13 rating due to extreme sauciness. (On the other hand, if chickpeas could talk they probably wouldn't be vegan anymore.)In addition to all that awesomeness, there's one more thing: the incredible multi-ethnicity our authors bring to the proverbial table.
