Esther's Story

This dish is traditionally served at Purim, the holiday that commemorates the rescue of the Jews from genocide by the Persian Jewish Queen, Esther. Many people call them Garbonzo Beans, but Mom never got used to that "new" name.


2 can(s)
garbanzos, drained and dried with paper towels
1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp
1 pinch
ground cumin
1 pinch
ground red pepper such as aleppo

Directions Step-By-Step

Drain Chickpeas and rinse. Dry thoroughly with paper towels. Put in a medium bowl and add spices. These are very addictive.
