Spiced Fresh Garbanzos

Seasoned with your favorite spices, you can enjoy these fresh garbanzo beans in minutes. Saute in oil and top with your favorites flavors. I used salt, pepper and garlic and my new favorite, Urfa Pepper (that is the black sprinkles)


  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 4 min
  • Ready Time : 9 min


4 Servings


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 pound shelled fresh garbanzo beans
  • sprinkle of coarse sea salt
  • sprinkle of your favorite spices


  1. Heat oil in a small frying pan. Add grated garlic.  Add shelled beans and stir-fry for 3-5ish minutes.  Remove from heat and sprinkle with salt and any other seasonings you desire.  Serve in a little bowl.

Note: I topped mine with one of my new favorite spices, Urfa Biber Pepper.  This is a Turkish pepper that is mild in heat, but high in flavor.  I love the way it looks and tastes sprinkled on my hummus and now on my garbanzos!

    I love beans!

  2. I made these for my son he LOVED them. I even had some & I don’t care for beans but will definitely keep this recipe on hand! Thank you!

    So I take a bag of dried hard garbanzo beans? Is that what you mean by fresh garbanzos? Or will canned wôrk too?

      If you re-read the recipe says;”shelled fresh garbanzo beans”.

    Yes, I read it. I have never seen fresh garbanzo beans in a Florida grocery, only bagged and dried or canned. Hence, my question. Tamar, what sayeth you?

    I have also never seen fresh garbanzo beans, but I would love to try them! Where would you suggest one look for such an item? Is it typically available only during certain times of the year? Thank you.

    I also would like to know if I can use canned or dried garbanzo beans, because this looks really good.

    • This recipe is pretty simple and would work well with canned garbanzos or frozen green peas, but if you can find yourself some fresh grabanzos you will taste something really amazing.

        Okay, thanks Tamar, if I ever come across fresh garbanzo beans, I will buy some, but where I live, it is difficult to find much Kosher food, let alone something like this.
