Recipe: Spicy Fresh Garbanzos
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 6 ounces fresh garbanzo beans in the shell (about 2.2-2.5 ounces shelled beans)
- Sprinkle of chili powder
- Sprinkle of ground cumin
- Sprinkle of salt
- Heat oil in a small frying pan. Add shelled beans and stir-fry for 3-5ish minutes, adding seasonings at the end of the time. Stir to mix everything well and coat the beans with the seasonings, and serve in a little bowl.
- Serves 2-4, depending on appetites.
Salad: You can use these Spicy Fresh Garbanzos instead of croutons to jazz up a salad!
Storage: Store them in the package in the refrigerator vegetable crisper for a week or so. Much longer than that and they might grow cashmere.

Instead of chili powder, cumin and salt, sprinkle with truffle salt once you remove them from the heat.
