imageFor working with chick peas or garbanzo beans that are dried and not from a can:  Place them in a bowl and fill it with two inches of water above the peas. Soak them overnight. Drain, and you are now working with beans as if they were from a can (only way better!)

Recipes Using Garbanzo Beans

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chick Peas

Sweet, spicy, herby, creamy, delicious! Sarah uses hummus in the sauce (not on the “staples” list), so you can choose whether to go homemade or to pick some up from the market (if you have extra garbanzos, might as well go homemade!) Give this tasty combo a try for a quick and easy lunch, light dinner or a side dish.

Acorn Squash Delights

Roast your acorn squash, mix with delicious things, stuff with cheese and bread with panko. What do you get? Something delightful! Garbanzo bean flour makes for a gluten-free alternative in this recipe.

Kale and Chick Pea Summer Salad

If working with dried garbanzo beans, they’ll need the quick soak method before beginning this recipe. Sarah uses mango in this one but fresh peaches are a great stand-in. Don’t have marmalade for this one? Search the site for our quick and easy recipe!
