BALILA

8 oz dried garbanzo beans (cooked) or 2 15-16 oz. cans of cooked garbanzo beans
we make ours fresh but that's what they're called in the store ^

2 cloves garlic minced

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 1/2 teaspoons Lebanese red pepper

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1/2 cup olive oil

Soak garbanzo beans in cold water over night for about 12 hours.
Drain and place in pan cover in water about 2 times the volume of beans and cook until tender for about 1 hour.

Drain and set it aside.

Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and add garbanzo beans.
Toss well and enjoy :)
