Also called the chick pea, the garbanzo bean is one of the oldest domesticated legumes in the world—archaeological evidence suggests it may have been grown in the Middle East as long as 9,500 years ago! During the Middle Ages, it was ascribed many (rather questionable) medical uses, even earning a mention by Charlemagne around the year 800. During World War I, someone had the idea to substitute ground garbanzo beans for coffee grounds—and some people still do so today!

It’s not hard to see why the garbanzo bean has been so popular over the centuries—or why it continues to be so popular among customers. It’s a rich source of several vital nutrients and minerals; 100 grams of garbanzo beans contains 20% or more of the daily value for protein, folate, dietary fiber, iron, phosphorus, and manganese. 

Garbanzo beans remain vitally important in Middle Eastern cuisine, as well as those of India and the Mediterranean. They form the central ingredient in hummus and falafel, and are a staple in many curries, soups, and salads. Because of their high protein content, distinctive texture (firmer and less mushy than most beans), and versatile flavor, our organic garbanzo beans make a fantastic addition to vegetarian or vegan dishes, but they’re a great addition to any diet.

Bring water to a boil, reduce to a slow simmer, and cook until tender. Timing varies with the age of the chickpeas, but with a pre-soak it typically takes about 1 1/2 hours. If not presoaked, cooking can take up to 4 hours.
