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 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.
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.
Mix Onions & tomatoes in a teaspoon of Oil, toss in the canned chickpeas and mix ,add spices and seasoning according to taste...if you have the patience for much more elaborate recipe-Google 'Chole'
You can substitute the chana dal with chickpeas here (its really, really good). Eat it with rice of flatbread!
There is also a favorite of mine - Chana Masala!

I have had to manage my salt since 1976 when I had open heart surgery. I have written and tried to encourage others to lessen their salt intake. I was thrilled when the dietary guidelines were changed.Now I find on the grocery store shelf - canned peas without salt!Absolutely...
