1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Cups Garbanzo beans (I use dried bobs red mill and make them fresh soaking them night before)
5 Organic Artichoke hearts, chopped into nice chunk size
¼ cup organic walnuts, chopped fine
2 teaspoon organic lemon juice
2 Tablespoons organic cilantro, fresh, chopped
In a large pan add oil and garbanzo beans drained, cook for 8 minutes on medium. Stir until garbanzo beans are golden brown. Remove to cool and set aside. Take artichoke hearts in same pan and brown them. Take garbanzo beans and artichoke hearts into bowl and mix together. Take walnuts and grind them in food processor until forming a nice fine chop. Add walnuts to garbanzo artichoke mixture. Top with lemon juice and fresh cilantro mixing well.
You can serve this warm as a side or cold as a salad, both ways are delicious.
