Everyone knows garbanzo beans make a great hummus when pureed with garlic, lemon juice, salt 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.

 

Garbanzo beans are packed with plant-powered nutrition – just one ¼-cup serving 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. 

 

Get cookin'!

 

Soak overnight, rinse and combine 1 cup garbanzo beans with 4 cups water (enough to cover the beans completely) in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, cooking until tender (approximately 2 hours). 

 

Once cooked, there are many ways to enjoy 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
  • Make falafel!

Plant-Based Chickpea “Meatballs”

These homemade Italian meatballs made with chickpeas are incredibly flavorful - even meat-eaters will love them! What’s more, chickpeas are full of protein, fiber and folate (an important vitamin that’s not found in many foods). If using dried chickpeas, take a little up-front prep time to soak them. Just cover in water overnight or in the morning, and you’re good to go. This recipe comes together quickly, tastes scrumptious (with a little punch of garlic and sweet carrot!) and is super filling. Serve with marinara sauce and your favorite pasta and you have a tasty vegan “spaghetti and meatballs” that your family will devour. They work wonderfully as an appetizer, too!
