This is a great vegetarian dish. You can serve it cold or hot. If you want to increase its amount of protein and fat you can add a can of tuna fish in olive oil and/or a hard boiled egg. —Candyland Queens
of dried garbanzo beans (previously soaked overnight)
medium size onion (yellow or red) finely chopped
Let the garbanzo beans boil in water and salt for about 2 hours on medium-low until it's entirely cooked (try a couple of beans to make sure that they fully cooked). Drain thoroughly (you can also use 2 cans of garbanzo, but we do prefer the dried garbanzos as they taste better).
Add the cooked garbanzos to a large bowl with the onion, cilantro and olive oil. Mix it thoroughly. If you want you can add the tuna and/or an egg to the mixture. It is delicious, both hot or cold and a kind of light bean dish.
