Chickpeas vs Garbanzo Beans

What’s the difference between Chickpeas and Garbanzo beans? Nothing! Garbanzo beans and chickpeas are the same bean, and the terms are used interchangeably.

Garbanzo came from the Spanish word while Chickpea has Latin origins. And what you call them may simply depend on where you’re from!

Garbanzo beans hold up great in hearty soups and stews and even chili, like in my Easy Chicken Chili Recipe.

Delicious Simplicity

I love hummus! And I sometimes forget how simple it is to make at home. I created this easy hummus recipe with simplicity and flavor in mind.

In place of tahini, I used greek yogurt. Tahini is made from sesame seeds, and while it’s found in traditional Middle Eastern hummus, it’s not always available in your local grocery store. Fresh garlic and lemon make it so flavorful. And cumin adds a touch of spice that I love so much.

The texture of hummus should be smooth and creamy. It’s intended to be a puree, with a paste-like consistency. I like to blend mine until it’s not quite paste and there’s just hint of the texture of the beans remaining. With some fresh parsley, a swirl of olive oil on top and a few whole chickpeas, it’s heaven.
