Anybody using green garbanzo beans? How so? Like them?
Never seen them offered for sale, actually never seen them at all.and do not know how they look like.
I like to have them around when I can, but supply is supper spotty in my area. For a while Cosco sold them bagged and frozen and that was a excellent product. Canned are pointless (unless you have a thing for off grey tinned peas, then you might be into it.) Better for cold or salad preparations, imho.
Around here, Costco & some of the Indian grocery stores have frozen Garbanzo beans, though called chana or choliya in the Indian stores (usually Punjabi). Nice in an Italian-style soup with carrots, tomatoes, onion, rosemary, parmesan rind & a grating of parm on top when serving. Could add them to a rice pilaf, anywhere you'd add peas or fresh beans. Much better than canned & faster than cooking dried chickpeas!
Like @berndy had never heard of them so went searching and found this.... http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/315778
We are a home of nibblers and grazers so of course will be on the lookout for the intact pods.
Will fit right in with the roasted in pod favas that @cheflayne (I think) has already hooked me on lol.
I appreciate the insight. It is a new product for me, as well. Interested in trying them. Thanks, again, @berndy, @AllanMcPherson, @summer57, @flipflopgirl
Just noticed this today on a Vancouver restaurant lunch menu --
SALMON - Golden Potato Gnocchi, Green Garbanzo Beans, Crispy Ham, Tomato Vinaigrette
Thanks, @summer57 for that menu item. I work for a food distribution company, and I have been tasked with how to potentially use the green variety. Thanks for sharing!
