Today I finally opened my # 10 can (6lb 12oz) of Garbanzo beans. I’ve tested two recipes and now my high-powered vita-mix went capote. It will start working again, but needs about 30 minutes to cool off.
I tested Hummus III. It’s a flavorful recipe, but my son who loves hummus didn’t like it. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s a bit to lemony. Or it could be that he’s two and his tastes randomly change.
One piece of information I really wanted to find out was how many cups of beans are in a #10 size can. Why?
It’s a very helpful piece of information when writing recipes for Team Up
cooks. Bulk ingredients are the way Team Up
cooks save money.
So now I know. A #10 size can holds 13 cups of Garbanzo beans.
Four people could Team Up and make a recipe that called for 3 cups of Garbanzo beans. Fudge a little with ingredients and each person go home from the party with about 3 ¼ cup of hummus. If your Vita-Mix motor will hold out.
