How to cook garbanzo beans

To prepare garbanzo beans, it is recommended to start with presoaking them for a few hours. Soaking the beans makes them easier to cook and digest. When cooking the beans, use about three cups of water for each cup of dried beans. Bring the liquid to a boil and then let it simmer for about an hour and a half. Some foam will likely develop during the cooking process. Skim this off as it appears. If the beans don’t become tender enough after an hour and a half, add in extra water and continue cooking them until they’re soft enough for your meal.

Ideas for preparing garbanzo beans

Meals and dishes made from garbanzo beans include a variety of Middle Eastern and Indian dishes such as hummus, falafel, and curries. Their flavor and taste range so greatly that they can be added as whole beans into meals like different style salads and soups. They can also be prepared as a side dish. Their creamy texture also gives them the potential to be made into spreads, dips, pastes, and sauces. Another option is to simply sprinkle their grinds in with your favorite spices and eat it as a snack. Garbanzo beans pair well with spices from all cultures and will work well in all kinds of recipes across the globe.
