Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are one of my favorite beans. Chickpeas are great by themselves, on top of salads, in stews, and can be the main base for hummus. Chickpeas can also be roasted and eaten as a crunchy snack with your favorite seasoning.
Chickpeas are easy to cook up. I usually begin soaking them in the evening and cook them the next morning (if I’m in a hurry) or cook them that night. Once I’m done, I let them cool and split them in to a few freezer safe container. If using frozen chickpeas on a salad, I often pull them out and soak them in warm water for a few minutes.
