Directions

  1. Using a 2 qt pot, boil the garbanzos with the 1/2 head of garlic until they are tender (1 1/2-2 1/2 hours). Remove the half head of garlic and enjoy the cooked garlic mashed and served as an appetizer on bread.
  2. In a frying pan, heat the oil and saute the 2 cloves of garlic, the onion and the carrots for 5 minutes.
  3. Add these to the garbanzo beans along with the mushrooms, epazote, chiles and salt. Simmer for 20 minutes over medium heat.
  4. Serve in personal bowls over cubes of avocado and garnish with the cilantro, limes and serrano chiles.
