marinate in worcestershire sauce and some oil overnight
spread out in baking sheet
sprinkle with garlic powder, onion powder and salt
cook at about 400 degrees until brown (maybe 20 min?)
they should be kind of hard
eat by the handful as a snack, not as good to serve with a mealSeptember 23, 2008 11:19 pm at 11:19 pm #641455shindyMember

Make a salad and throw in a can of chick peas and cubed smoked turkey. It makes a meal.
Also, it might help to soak the dried chick peas overnight before cooking them.March 24, 2009 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #641457David S.Member

Soak the Chick Peas overnight, and in the morning pour the water out and add new water. Boil the Chick Peas adding fennel (aids digestion problems) to the water and let it come to a boil and pour the water out again. Why pour the water out, so the beans will have less gas when you cook and finally eat them. Add new water to cook the beans and cook until tender. Pressure Cookers are fantastic for cooking Legumes (Chick Peas) and Whole Grains.March 25, 2009 6:33 am at 6:33 am #641459yankdownunderMember
Turmeric could be substituted for the Fennel in my above post as Turmeric is an anti inflammatory good for digestion and Arthritis.March 25, 2009 12:41 pm at 12:41 pm #641460tzippiMember
I make crunchy chickpeas. I like marinating them overnight.
Shindy, unless you need the space, they’re not chametz.
And I do urge letting them soak overnight instead of the bringing to boil, let them sit for an hour, then cook. The latter method is ok, but overnight soak is much better.March 25, 2009 12:49 pm at 12:49 pm #641461joyousMember
Can of chickpeas
Can of kidney beans
purple onion diced
vinaigrette dressingMarch 25, 2009 2:17 pm at 2:17 pm #641462oomisParticipant
Just make regular arbiss with a little salt and peper, using a can or so of garbanzos. They are a healthful snack, and really yummy. If you have cans that you want to use up, use them in a three bean salad, or make a deli salad and throw in a can, or the old standby – throw them into the cholent. You can even make your chumus froms cratch in a processor.
