Garbanzo beans are low in calories and fat, but high in protein, fiber, and many vitamins like vitamin K. This means they can be both a nutritious snack and a filling meal. Leftovers freeze well so it’s also a great make-ahead meal to have handy at work. You can easily grab a portion on your way out the door and enjoy an easy lunch.
You can always save leftover food for the next time you have to meal prep. Divide up the rest and keep it covered in the fridge for up to 4 days. To reheat, microwave it in a series of short bursts until cooked through.
What to serve with this yummy soup
Serving this on its own is a good idea, but if you want to have it with something else, try a simple salad and whole-grain baguette. It might also go well with some grilled cheese!
