Fresh Garbanzo Beans

The last time I was at Whole Foods, I saw some fresh garbanzo beans. Intrigued, I picked some up when Riley and I were there again today. From what I read, they are similar to edamame. But instead of steaming them, I decided to do a quick saute for a mid-afternoon snack. Delicious! I am now a fan!

  • fresh garbanzo beans
  • olive oil
  • fleur de sel 

Rinse and dry your garbanzo beans. Leave them in their husks. Heat olive oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Add the beans, cooking on a medium heat and agitating them every couple of minutes.

After 5 to 7 minutes, the husks will be nicely toasted.

Drain the beans on a paper towel to absorb any excess oil. Serve them on a platter, sprinkled with some fleur de sel.
