Great Garbanzos

>> Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Hey, all you crazy ninjas -- Stephen here! Ashley's feeling sluggish today, so I've taken on the posting responsibilities. When presented with the challenge of coming up with a topic, I didn't need to think for very long at all.

Today's focus? Garbanzo beans (chickpeas).


One of my favorite snacks in a rush is a half cup of rinsed garbanzo beans with a couple drips of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. And it seems the leftover beans always find their way into our meals.

WHY WE LOVE GARBANZOS:
  • They're delicious.
  • They're high in fiber and folate (shout to the pregnant women!).
  • They're a great source of protein for vegetarians.
  • They're cheap and readily available in canned or dried form.
  • There isn't a single spice -- at least we've found this to be true -- you can't toss in with them.
  • You can use them in almost any recipe. Seriously!
