      -you can eat them raw; pop them from the shell into your mouth
      - steam in shell, toss with lime juice and chile powder; shell and eat like edamame
      - roast in skillet with small amount of oil until skin is charred; shell, toss with olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper and eat
      - make humus with shelled beans
      - toss shelled beans in salad with lemon juice and olive oil, feta, chopped red and green bell peppers, green onions...

    2. Both Whole Foods (Telegraph Av in Berkeley) and Berkeley Bowl have them.
