Some say chickpea, some say garbanzo, we say delicious! We're lucky to have such a high production of these fiber and protein-rich legumes grown right in own backyard. The Co-op works closely with PNW Farmers Co-op for our garbanzos, which we use to make several varieties of homemade hummus. Not only is PNW great because they work with farmers who are dedicated to protecting the land, they also utilize the cooperative model, which we're pretty fond of. To learn more about PNW click here! Below is the recipe for our very own Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. For information on how to cook dried garbanzos, click here!

Combine peppers, onion, parsley, garlic, tahini, tamari, lemon juice, oil and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth. Add garbanzo beans and blend until completely smooth, scraping down the bowl as necessary.
