Garbanzo beans. Chickpeas. Ceci beans. Desi, bambai and kabuli varieties. Gram flour. Besan flour. All of these terms describe variations of the fabulous fabaceae family of legumes.

You're likely familiar with the deliciously creamy appetizer / snack known as hummus.  You may even use gluten-free garbanzo flour in your baking. Beans are an inexpensive high fiber food and can be a nutritious addition to gluten-free diets, especially when you learn how to soak and cook garbanzo beans to improve their digestibility.
