Basic prep

Carefully sort beans and rinse thoroughly. Soak overnight. Rinse and place in a large pot, covered with fresh water. Bring water to a boil for 3 minutes, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 60-90 minutes, until tender. This bean produces foam when boiling, so skim the water regularly.

Storage & handling

Store in a dry, cool place.


Garbanzo beans

Classic recipe


This version of the traditional Middle Eastern spread uses our dried Chickpeas, rather than canned, to create a creamier and more flavorful end result. The addition of baking soda prior to boiling speeds up the cooking process and helps to break down and remove the beans’ skins, while tahini, lemon juice and garlic add classic flavor.
