More About Garbanzo Beans, Also Known As Chickpeas
How to Select
Garbanzo beans are primarily purchased in their dried or canned forms.
How to Store
Dried garbanzo beans last for more than a year. For canned beans, use the "sell by date" on the can as your guide. Once canned garbanzos are opened, or dried garbanzos are cooked, keep them refrigerated and use within 3 to 4 days.
How to Prepare
Fresh or canned garbanzo beans can be prepared by baking, boiling, sauteing, frying, simmering in a sauce, grinding them to make falafel, or mashing them to make hummus. Dried garbanzo beans need to be cooked first. Soak dried beans in water overnight, then boil for about 2 hours, until beans are soft.
