Rancho Gordo

Garbanzo Beans

A slightly nutty-flavored classic bean, essential for Middle Eastern, Mexican and European cooking. New-crop harvest ensures quicker cooking and fresher flavor.  

Suggestions: Salads, hummus, soups, dips, snacks

Garbanzos aren't a true "new world" bean, as is Rancho Gordo's specialty, but they are so beloved and the imported crops tend to be so old and dusty that they made this one of their California crops.

Obviously they're classic for hummus and as a key ingredient in a green salad, but they're great in soups, too. For salads, try skipping the lettuce and go for the crunch. Celery, carrots, onions, Garbanzos (chickpeas) and your favorite dressing make for a great salad.
