Chick Peas (Garbanzos), Canned

(Chick Peas or Garbanzos, Canned)  Canned chick peas (garbanzos) are a quick way to enjoy this bean in salads and other recipes.  The drawback to the canned variety of chick peas is that they are usually prepared with salt.  We suggest that you drain off the liquid before using them.  Mostly, we use canned chick peas on our salads, as a last minute treat.  Chick peas are higher in fat and protein than other commonly eaten beans.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-25)
