Toasted Garbanzo


This is Rachael Ray's awesome snack. This is very easy to make with just a few ingredients. I and my DH love this so much because of cheesy flavor of the beans. I think this is perfect for a movie night snack. Instead of popcorn or any other common snack, serve this nutty and spicy garbanzo with drinks. I usually add garlic for more flavor, the entire house smells awesome for some time while cheese is melting and garlic is toasting. Try this snack, I am sure you will like it and after all, who doesn't love a little crunch in their snack!!!!!!

Ingredients:-


  • 3 cups Garbanzo Beans, cooked
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, grated
  • 1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Red Chili Flakes to taste
  • Salt to taste

Method:-

1. Preheat non-stick pan for 10 minutes on medium-low heat.

2. Drain garbanzo beans very well. Add them into the pan and let it toast for 10-12 minutes. Stir occasionally.

3. Add grated garlic, oil, salt, and red chili flakes. Toast for 1o minutes.

4. Add Parmesan cheese and mix well. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and is covering beans.

5. Let it cool just a little and serve with a little extra cheese sprinkle.

Enjoy...

Tips:

1. Drain garbanzo complete before putting them into pan, otherwise they won't be as crunchy as they should be.

2. Be gentle on salt. Parmesan cheese will infuse salty flavor any way.
