In order to have dried chickpeas ready for cooking you can soak them overnight. Or, if time is of the essence…
Preparing Dried Garbanzo Beans
- 1 cup dried chickpeas/garbanzo beans
- 3 cups water
Put three cups of water and one cup of chickpeas into the Instapot.
Use the manual button, then set the timer to 10 minutes. Let them get up to temperature/pressure and steam for ten minutes. Then, let them naturally lose pressure for 10 minutes. At that point, release the steam valve.
Your beans are now ready to use in recipes. One cup of dried chickpeas gives you two cups of pre-cooked chickpeas.
