As our Lithuanian ancestors used to say, why weren’t we born in the Mediterranean? Well now, you can be, močiūtė.

There are enough chick’n products out there, so we refuse to call this chick’n salad, or not-chicken salad, or veggcken salad. And because chickpea + chicken = chickpean; we can’t use that.

But this mix does remind us of chicken salad, despite being made with the ingredients for which the Med is famous: chickpeas, tahini, pistachios, and dates.

Enjoy this hot or cold – maybe in a pita, or on rice – but keep it simple, because the most important thing is to kick off your sandals, wiggle your toes in the sand, and let the wind blow a little through your toga.

Ingredients: chickpeas*, water, aromatics (onion*, carrot*, celery*), pistachios*, tahini*, dates*, lemon juice*, extra virgin olive oil*, salt, dry mint* (*ORGANIC)

Contains: pistachios, sesame

Versatile and tasty

We ordered the Best Beans in the Med and were able to use them over the course of three very different meals. Heated up or served cold. Eaten as is or used as one part of a larger dish. However you eat em it doesn't matter because they are so good and tasty. Order the larger size to get more usage out of these delicious beans!

you cannot go wrong with these! truly the best!

So tasty (and healthy!)

I purchased “The Best Beans in the Med” at the Wicker Park farmers market, and they taste great! I wanted a snack/side that would go with my VegeCleanse detox, and this product had all natural, no sugar ingredients. The dates add the right amount of natural sweetness. I tried a sample at the farmers market, and I was hooked. Try them!

Delicious and family friendly!

These are really tasty beans! We've been eating them as a snack and as a side with dinner. The little kids love them too! They're savory and refreshing (the mint is delicious) with a hint of sweet from the dates.

Toddler-approved (mama loves 'em, too)

The dates give these babies just enough sweet that my 2-yr old devours them, saying, "taste like chocolate!" They do not taste like chocolate. But they ARE the perfect little combo of savory with a hint of sweet. I slap a few spoonfuls on toast or eat it straight up.

Answers to questions we're not sure you have

Asked Questions

How do I know if I'm in the Bean Club?

To become a member, simply subscribe to the items in your cart. You can select a delivery cadence that works best for you, and update or cancel your membership anytime.

How will the products get to me?

If you're in Chicago, we will deliver it to you in person. Keep an eye on your email to find out your delivery window.

Do these products need to be refrigerated?

Yes, please refrigerate your products, and eat them within a day or two of receiving them. They are made fresh, from only whole ingredients, without artificial preservatives of any kind.

Do any of these products contain common food allergens?

Yes. While all of our products are vegan (we never use dairy, eggs, or honey), some do contain other common allergens, like tree nuts or sesame. Please check the ingredient list for each product.

Additionally, please note that the products free of common allergens are being made in a kitchen alongside products containing allergens. If you do have a severe food allergy, consider waiting until we roll out a more controlled manufacturing process.

Are these products vegan?

Yes. However, veganism includes a larger and more rigorous ethical framework, so we chose to start with the term "plant-based". We do think veganism has merit, and we hope that our products appeal to our many vegan and non-vegan friends alike.

What gave you the idea to start making these products?

We've spent plenty of time in the tofu section of the grocery store, and always felt that something was missing. So we made it: actually healthful products made exclusively from whole plant foods that are delicious and ready to eat.
