Everyone knows garbanzo beans make a great hummus when pureed with garlic, lemon juice and tahini – but there's more to this rotund legume than meets the pita chip.
Did you know that garbanzo beans (or chickpeas, as they're commonly called) have been cultivated for thousands of years? Over the centuries, they've been consumed in a variety of forms – raw, roasted, cooked, boiled, pureed and even brewed into a coffee-like drink.
Beans are packed with plant-powered nutrition – just one 1/2-cup serving of these organic garbanzos provides 4 grams of filling fiber and 7 grams of satisfying protein; it’s no surprise that these legumes are beloved by vegetarians, dieters and foodies alike.
Aside from hummus, there are many ways to enjoy these canned garbanzos:
Use as topping for salad
Add to your favorite savory soup or stew
Drizzle with coconut oil, honey and cinnamon and roast in the oven
