Question Garbanzoes/Chick Peas

Has anyone else had the experience of Garbanzo Beans sparking in the microwave? Any ideas on the substance causing it? All of the instances have been from rinsed canned Garbanzoes.

JG Dean, Buonasera,

I believe, there is the possibility that you have put the Chick Peas on too high or for too long.

What are you preparing ? Pasta di Fagioli ( Fazool ) ? Hummus ? Fabada ?

Have a lovely Sunday.
Ciao.
Margi.

Strangely enough. I have a Cockatoo Parrot that I mix beans and veggies and pasta for his evening meal and I heat it for maybe 20 seconds on high from being refrigerated.

JG Dean,

I would go on Medium - 15 seconds ... Let it get room temp a bit ... I have never had this problem and chickpeas are a staple in a Mediterranean household.

A Cuckatoo Parrot Prince ! Cute. Never realised that they eat legumes and pasta !

Try it again, lower the heat and time ...


Kind regards.
Margi.

Never heard of this. There are many recipes for microwaved chickpeas. Is there a short in the oven? Any chance of even the slightest amount of metal in the dish? I had a coffee cup that would spark.

Dawgluver,

I rarely use High on my Microwave Ovens ... Put it a bit lower, and less time ...

Have a lovely Sunday,
Ciao.
Margi

JG Dean,

Wow ... I do not know much about Cuckatoo Parrots, however, I have some old friends in Key West who had a huge stunning male Parrot Bacchus years ago. He talked and was quite animated ... He was actually quite humorous ... He was bright royal blue with yellow ... Very intelligent ... Used to sing along with the Radio !

Years ago, we had British Shorthair kit kats, and now The Vet ( my husband ), has recently rescued and fostered an Andalusian Silver Donkey of 11 years who was abandoned on a road side. Rubi is a sweet old gal. She was left to ---, and lucky, the Vet was able to pull over and telephone his Rancher and Farmer clients for assistance. He had some bananas in the Jeep ... Donkies love bananas ... She was half starved ... That was about a year ago, and now she has totally recovered.

She follows the Vet around like a dog ... She just adores him.

Kind regards.
Margi.

Have a nice day,
Ciao.
Margi.

The only other thing I ever had spark was a cheap mug quite awhile back. I put the food in a glass corelle wear bowl to heat. I wonder if the chickpeas picked up metal from the growing soil or can??? This has ocurred with several brands.
