Garbanzo Beans

Bulk Beans sold in 1 lb and 5 lb quantities

Garbanzo Beans (chickpeas) are a delicious, versatile, nutritious staple, and cooking dried beans at home makes them incredibly affordable.

These protein-packed legumes have a mild, nutty flavor. 

Add them to soups, salads, curries and salads.  And of course, use them to make homemade hummus.

Chickpeas are an excellent source of several nutrients to shield the heart from damage including fiber (soluble and insoluble fiber), folate and magnesium. Studies suggest that fiber, especially soluble fiber, can help lower LDL cholesterol (the 'bad cholesterol') levels and consequently reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Folate has been shown to control high homocysteine (a naturally occurring amino acid found in blood plasma) levels, high levels are a known risk factor for heart disease and magnesium is cardio protective by taking constricted arteries and relaxing them

Chickpeas are an excellent natural source of zinc and copper.  These two minerals are essential for the development and function of immune cells.
Just one cup of cooked chickpeas provides nearly 30% of the Daily Recommended Value for copper and about 17% of the Daily Value for zinc.

 

Legumes like chickpeas are loaded with fiber and protein, both of which help increase fullness. In addition to making you feel fuller with fewer calories, the protein and fiber in chickpeas can also reduce the body's insulin amount distributed. Insulin is a fat-storing hormone that is thought to play a key role in the development of mid-section obesity

A review published in the British Journal of Nutrition in 2012 reported that diets rich in chickpea may improve overall gut health by aiding the movement of material through the digestive system and by preventing constipation.  As with all beans gas and flatulent may occur
Cook Time:  60-90 minutes after pre soak

Garbanzo beans are soaked before boiling for two reasons – one, they need to be softened before they boil, and two, pre-soaking helps to make the beans more digestible. You can soak them quickly, overnight or soak the beans for a couple of days until they begin to sprout. Some say that the nutritional value improves when the garbanzo beans are sprouted. NOTE:  If you try want to sprout, you’ll need to use cold water & make sure you change the water they are soaking in twice daily to keep bacteria at bay.
To quick soak the beans:  Place the garbanzo beans into the bottom of a large pot and cover with water about 3-4 inches above since garbanzo beans expand.  Bring to a boil for 5 minutes.  Then let sit for 1 hour.  Drain and Rinse
  • To cook soaked beans:  them in a large pot and cover with several inches of water (usually about 1 quart of water per 1 cup of soaked beans). Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Add salt, if desired  Let the beans cook for 60-90 minutes till desired tenderness.
