Expert Tips

Garbanzo beans are also called chickpeas or ceci. These buff-colored legumes have an irregular round shape and a mild, nutlike flavor. Garbanzo beans are popular in many parts of the world, including the Mediterranean and the Middle East, India, Mexico and Spain.

One cup of coarsely chopped bell pepper plus 1/2 cup of chopped onion can be used in place of the frozen bell pepper and onion stir-fry mixture.
