Cooking Chickpeas in Electric Pressure Cooker
My family really likes Hummus but I don't like the cost! My daughter makes it on occasion, using canned beans. I decided to try using the Pressure Cooker and dried beans.
I have to admit, that when I went to the bulk food store in our area, I spent a lot of time looking for chickpeas. I didn't know that Garbanzo beans and Chickpeas are the same thing! Learn something new every day!
I didn't plan ahead, so I cooked the beans without soaking. They turned out great!
Chickpeas in Electric Pressure Cooker
3 cups water
1 cup dried chickpeas
Rinse and sort the chickpeas.
Place the water and chickpeas in the pressure cooker.
Lock the lid in place. Make sure the lid is sealed.
Pressure cook on High for 35 minutes. Let pressure down naturally.
