How To Cook Garbanzo Beans


3 Cups




1hr 35 mins





1. Add one cup of dried garbanzo beans to a large bowl and cover them with water.

Make sure several inches of water cover the chickpeas as they will absorb the liquid as they soak. Let soak for at least 8 hours.

2. Drain and rinse the beans thoroughly.

3. Place the beans in a medium pot and cover them with several inches of water and bring to a boil.

4. Turn down to a simmer and add salt along with any aromatics you like. I like to add quartered onion, peeled whole garlic cloves, and bay leaves at a minimum.

5. Cook until the garbanzo beans are nice and tender.

6. Turn the heat off, and discard any aromatics.

7. Strain and use as desired, or store in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
