Savory Vegetarian Garbanzos

I got this recipe from the Basque lady who was my landlady at my first apartment, back in 1963. She was a wonderful cook. She and her husband would butcher a pig in their driveway once a year and make Basque chorizo, which was pure heaven!



  • 3 cups garbanzos (chickpeas)
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 minced onion
  • 1/2 chopped green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cups canned tomatoes (or 1 quart home-canned)
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar


Soak the garbanzo beans overnight in the water. Add salt and simmer 1 hour. In another pan, mix the remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes. Mix garbanzos and sauce in a covered oven-proof 2 quart pan or dish and bake 1 1/2 hours at 325 degrees F. Sometimes you have to add a little water. Serves 8 for about $2.50.
