The key ingredient in this curried chickpeas recipe is curry powder. I love using Sprouts organic curry powder and bulk beans. By cooking garbanzo beans from scratch, you’re able to make them more flavorful than ever and control the texture.

Sprouts is having their Bring On The Beans sale starting today so go stock up! Most of your favorite beans will be on sale for 99 cents per pound! I am so excited to restock my dry bean collection since they are so useful to have on hand.
