    What else can you do with Chick Peas or Garbanzos?

    I use them for Hummus and salad.  Any other ideas?

    I add them to canned soups a lot. They give it a little extra variety.

      I do this too.  Forgot to mention it.  I just love chick peas so much.  Honestly, I pour them in a bowl & just eat them like a snack.

    I saw this recipe on Yahoo and several other places.  Open a can of chick peas, drain and rinse well.  Use paper towels to dry them and remove the loose skins.  Coat with a little olive oil and season with any seasoning you like.  They used salt and a little paprika on Yahoo. I guess some people use sugar and cinnamon, or garlic salt and red pepper flakes.

    Put on a cookie sheet in a 400 deg oven for about 40 minutes - or until crispy all the way through.  Some say they are better than chips.  Personally I did not care for them but a lot of people do.

      This sounds interesting.  I've never tried them this way, probably because taking the skins off sounds like a chore. lol  And sugar?  Never tried them as sweet.  I will experiment. Thanks!

    I make another chip dip like hummus. I puree the canned chickpeas, add olive oil, garlic powder, cayenne, a little lemon juice and plain yogurt. I just season it to suit my tastes for the day, and if it is too thin, I thicken it with baby cereal.

    Its also good if you pour in a can or Rotel!

      Another recipe I've never tried.  Thanks guys.  Baby cereal? and I love yogurt and never added that to my chick peas but will try this as well.

      I have a lot of baby cereal.  My daughter hated it, so it all went in the deep freezer. It works great for thickening sauces and holding meatloaf together too. Mashed potato flakes would probably do the same thing.

    You can substitute the chana dal with chickpeas here (its really, really good). Eat it with rice of flatbread! big_smile
