I am making my Middle Eastern Easter Feast. In addition to mixed olives and pickles, I saw some fresh garbanzos in my local Middle Eastern market. Pan roasting them with a bit of spice seemed like a quick and easy side dish for a feast.
After Dinner Note: Eating fresh garbanzo beans prepared this way tastes a lot like edamame.
Karl’s Sautéed Fresh Garbanzos
2 Tbs. olive oil
½-1 lb. fresh garbanzos in the shell, rinsed
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp. Penzeys Turkish spice
Pinch Fleur de Sel
1 Put the oil in a large sauté pan and heat on high until the oil is shimmering.
2. Add the garbanzo and stir fry for one minute.
Note: When you are buying your fresh garbanzos, select pods that are still firm and not wilted, discolored, or broken open.
3. Add the garlic and continue to stir fry for one to two minutes more, until the pods are beginning to char.
4. Sprinkle on the Turkish spice and toss to coat for another 15 seconds.
5. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with Fleur de Sel.
