FRESH Garbanzo Beans -- Can they be consumed raw?

liu | Jun 12, 2006 12:06 AM

We purchased some FRESH garbanzo beans in the pod at a local Mexican market -- a very large handful for about $.30. I have been eating them raw, right out of the pod, but I am not sure if I should. Does anyone know for sure that they are safe if eaten this way, or do they need to be cooked first for easier and safer digestion.
(If I am well enough tomorrow to read your posts, I guess I answered my own question!)
