Ooh! You can make fake tuna salad out of them. First, soak them and cook them according to the directions. Then lightly mash them, toss with tofu mayo, diced celery, pinch of salt, whatever ingredients you use to make tuna salad.

I bought garbonzo beans for the first time this weekend. I want to make hummus but am not sure how to go about this. A little more would be appreciated.

hummus - garbonzos, tahini, green onion, paprika, lemon juice, oil, salt, garlic...i think that's all you need. The tahini is the hardest to find, but without it, the hummus is really gross. I'll get a link for the actual ammounts when i find one.

Make the hummus! I made some last night and I have never made it myself before. I made it as garlicky and spicy as I wanted... yum!

Hummus is, of course, the correct answer to your question.<br><br><br><br>
But we would have also accepted <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=56957" target="_blank">chana masala.</a>

Stupid question.... What is tahini? What does it taste like (besides tahini!)?</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
Tahini is a sesame paste/butter.<br><br><br><br>
On its own: It tastes like buttery sorrow.<br><br><br><br>
In hummus: Like manna from heaven.<br><br><br><br>
I honestly have no idea what anyone would want to do with tahini outside of hummus.

I'm not a tahini fan. I have used sesame oil (just a tad) and I also add Tofutti Better than Sour cream. Gives it an awesome texture and taste!

Tahini is wonderful. <3 What brand are you buying? Maranatha brand is horrid. <a href="http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/P/B0005ZWVQ6.01-A3CDPEGSIQM61V._SCMZZZZZZZ_.jpg" target="_blank">Joyva</a> is mmmmmmmmmmmm.
