Favorite recipes for fresh garbanzo beans

We went to Cárdenas Market today and found 2# bags of fresh garbanzos for cheap (around $2), and so I bought a bag.

I have never cooked these before, but I know I have to shell them first, which will be easy, but I don't know the best way to use them.

I would like it if I could make falafel with them, but I don't think that would work. I would like something Middle Eastern or maybe Egyptian, I think.

I have very few cookbooks here in Cathedral City, but I can search online, if needed.

Anyway, what are your favorite recipes for fresh garbanzos? I've seen recipes that has them cooked in their shells and some that shell them first - which is better?
