This is an excerpt from An Anonymous Tuscan Cookery Book

Chickpeas for invalids. Take red or white chickpeas; set them to cook with oil and salt and pepper and saffron and a bit of rue; grind them in a mortar, and eat. Also take crushed chickpeas and boil them, and throw away the water, put them in fresh water to cook with oil and chopped lard, salt, saffron, spices, beaten egg yolks and a bit of cheese; and mix everything together, and serve.
