As if the antioxidants, fiber, and deliciousness weren’t reason enough to love chickpeas, their personalities will certainly do the trick. In this playful series of photos by NYC based Turkish artist Sadi Tekin, little garbanzo bean heads explore the big apple. Tekin drew unique facial expressions on a bunch of dry garbanzo beans, utilizing the natural nose and chin grooves of the handsome legumes, then had a field day making bodies for them in unique New York (Ron Burgundy would be proud to read this aloud) locations.
Tekin shows that chickpeas are more than just hummus and after seeing these fantastic images it will be hard to look at the little legumes the same way again- knowing now that they have noses.
