Toothsome, nutty garbanzo beans make delicious salads, pasta dishes, hummus, and more. When cooked with whole grains like brown rice or tucked into whole-grain pitas, they form a complete protein. And you don’t have to soak Sprouted Garbanzo Beans before cooking for a tender, easy-to-digest dish; our sprouting process takes care of that!
Garbanzo beans are a treasure trove of vitamins and minerals, including molybdenum, manganese, folate, copper, phosphorus, and zinc. Vegetarians and vegans, rejoice: garbanzo beans are packed with iron and have more protein per quarter-cup (about ten grams, to be exact) than an egg! They are also rich in fiber, including colon-healthy insoluble fiber, and antioxidants like flavonoids, which reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in our garbanzo beans. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful bean. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
FUN FACT! The famous Roman orator Cicero (you know, the other guy assassinated in The Tragedy of Julius Caesar) came from a family of garbanzo bean farmers. “Cicer” is Latin for “garbanzo bean.”
