CRISP GARLIC GARBANZOS
from "Mrs. Witty's Home-Style Menu Cookbook" by Helen Witty

Devised on a summer weekend when swarms of people were expected on the deck for cocktails, this treatment of garbanzos—also known as chick-peas—is now much in request. The nutty little legumes are especially good with a glass of dry sherry or white wine; their texture is a pleasant contrast to the smooshier types of cocktail food.

Like fava beans, garbanzos have an extra coat of skin, and they're more pleasant to eat without it; so, if time permits, I pinch off their outer coats after they've been soaked. The skinning isn't essential, and neither is starting from scratch; canned garbanzos do quite well when time is short.

About 3 cups
INGREDIENTS (CLICK TO BUY)

2 cans (19 ounce size) canned garbanzos

PREPARATION

Drain, rinse well under running water, and pat dry with paper towels.
Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok. Add the garlic and the garbanzos and toss-fry over medium-high heat, scooping and tossing them constantly, until they are crisp and deep gold in color, about 8 minutes. Salt lightly and serve warm or at room temperature.
Refrigerate leftovers. They'll soften in storage but can be recrisped by a few minutes' tossing in a skillet.
