Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas, are protein packed beans that are a great alternative to meat. They are full of complex carbohydrates and zero cholesterol. Your wallet will also feel healthier because a 1 lb. of dried chickpeas will yield around 5 cups of cooked chickpeas! Try chickpeas, you won’t be disappointed!

Ingredients:

  • Dried chickpeas
  • Water
  • Herbs of your choice

Directions:

  1. 1. For every 2 c. of dried chickpeas (1 pound) use 6 to 8 c. of water.
  2. 2. Put beans and water in a medium - large stockpot and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. 3. Boil for 3 minutes and remove from heat.
  4. 4. Cover and let beans soak for 1 hour to 1-1/2 hours.
  5. 5. Throw away any damaged beans, drain, and rinse.

Overnight Soak Method

  1. 1. For every 2 cups of dried chickpeas (1 pound) use 6 to 8 cups of water.
  2. 2. Place beans and cool water in a medium to large stockpot.
  3. 3. Cover the beans and let soak at least 8 hours overnight.
  4. 4. Throw away any damaged beans, drain, and rinse.

Cooking Chickpeas

  1. 1. Place soaked beans in rice cooker bowl and add 4 cups of water. Feel free to add a bay leaf, a leaf or two of sage, or a teaspoon of epazote. Do not add anything salty or acidic, like tomatoes and wine.
  2. 2. Set rice cooker to regular cycle.
  3. 3. When the timer sounds, check the beans. You want them to be tender without falling apart. They need a little firmness to them.
  4. 4. You may have to cook the beans for up to an hour more than the suggested 2 hours. Keep enough liquid in the pot to keep the beans submerged. The liquid should start turning into a velvety sauce. If you have to add more water, make sure to add boiling water.
  5. 5. When beans are done, carefully remove rice cooker pan and turn off the rice cooker. Add any other seasonings. If you want to add wine or sherry, add it now and cook a few minutes longer to let the alcohol cook off.
  6. 6. The beans are ready for whatever you have planned.
