My local health food store recently began carrying South River Certified Organic Chickpea Miso. I have been on a chickpea jag for a few weeks now so when this caught my eye, I managed to not let the $12 price tag deter me from trying it.
While I love, love, love Miso soup, I have to admit that I haven't tried this as soup yet. It makes an amazing spread on crackers, wraps and sandwiches! I have even spread it on veggies, both raw and cooked.
The first jar lasted a week and when I asked the family if they liked it as much as I did, I was told no one else had tried it. That means I ate an entire 16oz. jar completely on my own in a week! I'm going easier on the second jar - it is $12 after all - but I don't expect it will last much more than two weeks. The taste is wonderful; tangy, aged chickpea mash, just delicious.
If you are a fan of chickpeas highly recommend you give this one a try. I just goodsearched and found the company has an online store. Yikes! They don't ship during the summer months. I'm going to have to hit the HFS and pick up whatever they have on hand ASAP.
(I was not compensated by the company for this post, I just like the stuff and wanted to share my enjoyment.)
