Garbanzo Bean Soup


gGarbonzo Bean Soup

No salt added canned garbanzo beans are already cooked, but have more than one cup of beans per can. The leftovers can be frozen for future use. The other option is to cook your own beans, freezing any leftovers in one cup portions. This option also lowers the sodium content of the beans from 60 to 11 mg. per cup.
