    Default fresh garbanzos

    I stopped at the local produce market to pick up a couple of things when
    I spotted a small display of fresh garbanzos.

    I had never seen them before.

    I bought about a quarter of a pound - they were 4.99 per pound. They are
    very light but there are also a lot of empty pods so you have to pick
    carefully.

    What do you do with them beside just eat them raw. They have a very
    green, fresh taste.

    Here's a picture.

    Spread them on a cookie tray that has been lightly buttered, after
    tossing them in a small bit of chicken stock and mashed, puree of garlic.

    If you have a cookie sheet with sides, that will hold a bit of liquid,
    add just enough to cover the bottom of the cookie sheet, with the mashed
    garlic and the fresh garbonzoes and put in a 375F (hotish?) oven for
    about 5 - 7 minutes or till desired degree of doneness. Still once or
    twice and if you do it right the chicken stock and garlic will begin to
    caramelize.

    Serve on bread or as a side or toss with a vinaigrette for salad.

    A bit of salt and pepper of course, i even like to use cayenne flakes.

    And if you have another favorite herbs and spices by all means experiment.

    You might even try pureeing them as for humus after they are cooked a bit.

    I cant imagine my self paying such a price for them though, i get the
    dried for about .50 cents per pound.

    Once upon a time we planted garbanzo beans in our garden.. Two whole
    rows of them. Didn't know that
    there are basically one bean to a pod. After all the work of shelling
    enough to make a meal....well, needless to say we didn't plant
    garbanzo beans anymore.

    Mark Bittman at the New York Times had a recipe for garbanzo beans in
    his column that looked really good.
    You could use the fresh ones since the recipe calls for cooked or
    canned.
