All-natural, raw organic chickpeas are also known as garbanzo beans.
Use chickpeas to make healthy side dishes or homemade hummus.
Adding chickpeas to salads and soups provides extra fiber and protein.
How to Prepare Organic Chickpeas
Stovetop directions: Combine soaked or dried beans, with water, oil, or butter. Bring the beans to a boil, reduce the heat, then cover and simmer until beans are tender. This process takes between 30 minutes and three hours, depending on the bean variety. Check the beans occasionally to see if they are covered with the cooking liquid. If the top of the beans becomes exposed, add very hot tap water to cover the beans. It's natural for some foam to form on top of the cooking liquid. This foam is water-soluble protein released from the beans and it will be absorbed back into the bean cooking liquid. (To keep the foam down when cooking beans, add one tablespoon of butter, jus (to taste), or vegetable oil, for each cup of beans.)
