Best Beans in the Med
Best Beans in the Med
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, extra virgin olive oil, tahini, aromatics (onion, carrot, celery, garlic), lemon juice, pistachios, dates, mint, salt
Contains: pistachios, sesame (tahini)

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.
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.
These beans are ahhhmazing! So so flavorful. The bites of pistachio and figs just put them over the top. Heated them up and enjoyed in a pita, can’t wait for my next delivery.
We've enjoyed these beans on rice, on a bed of greens, and as a side, and it always delivers. Filling, tasty, and textured. Love it!
Best is right! This thing hums — and I’ve basically only been able to enjoy it via chips cause it goes so fast. Am excited to try it in more ways, but really enjoying this one as a unique, not-your-average dip.

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.
