Description
 
Garbanzo Beans are small, round legumes that are full of flavor and nutrients. Also called chickpeas, Garbanzo Beans are and have been for centuries an important staple of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. They are high in protein and essential nutrients and low in fat, making them a great addition to your diet, especially when eating vegetarian.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:
Before cooking, soak the Garbanzo Beans in cool water. There are so many ways to use Garbanzo Beans-- perhaps one of the most well-known ways is in hummus. Simply cook the beans and put them in a food processor along with a little tahini, garlic, lemon juice and some of our Italian Coratina or Portuguese Cobrancosa extra virgin olive oil, and puree until smooth. Finish with a drizzle of our Organic Red Hot Pepperoncini extra virgin olive oil for a spicy kick! Try our Garbanzo Beans in soups and stews as well, especially a hearty Minestrone. To add some great protein to your next salad, toss in a handful of our Garbanzo Beans, along with shredded carrots, chopped tomatoes, creamy avocado and fresh field greens; finish with a drizzle of our Organic Crushed Meyer Lemon extra virgin olive oil and our Oregano White Balsamic vinegar for a refreshing dressing!
