La Boqueria Market, Barcelona

fruit fuzz

I've seen some fuzzy fruit in my time, but this is ridiculous.

chickpea boqueria

This chickpea hodgepodge was at Bar Central in the market. While the grilled veg were sprinkled liberally with nice flaky salt, the chickpea/spinach/broth was almost under-seasoned - but in a good way. Eggs find their way into all sorts of dishes there, and I enjoyed the just-firm broth-soaked scraps in this bowlful. They contributed another toothy texture to the chunky, wholesome goodness.
Just a little reminder of how classy cheap proteins like beans 'n' eggs can be, in the right hands.
