This was good! Cooked for about 20 minutes to get them all crunchy. Used other seasonings and a bit more oil. Read More

Well they did jump in the pan...but they weren't very crunchy at all (actually they had the consistency of a raw chick pea - and I cooked them much longer than it said). I might have been expecting too much - I think the term 'snack' led me to believe that they would be something you could make and then take for lunches or snacks...it's really an eat-it-hot sort of dish. It was okay for what it was - my boyfriend really liked them - but I think those chick peas would have been better used in hummus. Read More

the traditional way to make this is to deep fry well soaked but not cooked garbanzos. Read More

I agree with the previous review. However I took the beans and used them to make hummus out of - it's pretty good! 1/3 cup tahini 1/4 cup lemon juice 1 teaspoon salt (although I would use a bit less or none at all the lemon pepper and creole seasoning adds enough salt) 2 gloves garlic (although I might use less than this too). I also had to add some water I think the cooked beans were harder to blend. Read More
