Black Garbanzo Beans
Black Garbanzo Beans are similar to traditional yellow garbanzo beans except they tend to be smaller and range in color from dark brown to black.
Soak overnight. Rinse and place in a large pot and cover with fresh water. Bring water to a boil for 3 minutes, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 60 to 90 minutes until tender. This bean produces foam so skim the water regularly.
