Garbanzo Almond Tappas

This tangy appetizer is packed with fiber. Warm toasted almonds make this a melty favorite for parties.


  • 2 cans drained garbanzos
  • 1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 T. lemon juice
  • 3 crushed garlic cloves, or garlic powder (1/2 -1 t.)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (roughly)
  • generous pinch of fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 c. unsalted raw almonds, roughly chopped (leave some still whole)
  • 4-6 oz. crumbled goat cheese or bleu cheese


  1. In a small skillet over high heat, toast the almonds.
  2. Meanwhile, mix up the dressing, all parts in; give a shake or stir.
  3. Pour dressing over garbanzos.
  4. After almonds are toasted, sprinkle dressed garbanzos with goat cheese, toss.
  5. Blend the almonds in while they are still warm to get a “melty” effect.
  6. Toss all–garbanzos, almonds, cheese. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Even tastier the next day.
  7. Serve with crackers or raw vegetables.
