Tips

Expert Tips

Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas, have a round, irregular shape and nutlike flavor. These "little chicks" are very popular in Indian, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Italian and Mexican cuisines.

No need to crumble your own feta. Look for crumbled cheese at your grocery store.
