Fresh garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas, have a gently sweet flavor and a delicately tender texture. Two to three beans, varying in color from a very pale green to dark green, are produced in each paper-like pod.


Not only are garbanzo beans delicious, they're also nutritious, providing plenty of fiber, protein and vitamins.


Use fresh garbanzo beans in almost exactly the same way you would fresh edamame. Steam lightly in their shells, or char for a few minutes under the broiler or in a hot pan. Season simply with plain or flavored sea salt, and serve as finger food. The beans may also be removed from their shells, and cooked similarly to English peas. Blanch in boiling water, and toss in mixed bean salads, as an alternative to lima beans in succotash, or dress by themselves with a light vinaigrette. Fresh garbanzos may also be blended into a fresh, flavorful green hummus.
