I can honestly say that I didn't like beans either, but now that I have learned how to use them in more ways than just cooked with a ham hock and served with cornbread, I am discovering that I really DO like beans.
I love chickpeas when they're cooked. I make these chickpea burgers that are one of my absolute favorite meals. I don't make the tahini sauce, but I spread a little of that Philadelphia cooking cream on top. So good!
I also like them roasted. I toss them with olive oil and sprinkle some kosher salt on top then roast them at 400* for about 30 minutes or so.
