Fresh garbanzo beans

pat hammond | Feb 15, 2003 03:17 PM

In my Mexican grocery store I saw large baskets of what turned out to be fresh, green, garbanzo beans. The're in a green pod, like peas, just one bean to a pod. (At first I thought they were fresh olives.) Folks were buying big produce bags full. When I asked the cashier how they were prepared she said Mexican people ate them raw.

I wonder if anyone has cooked with these beans. It seems you could cook them like fava or lima beans but I'm not sure.
