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.
