How To Cook Chickpeas In A Pressure Cooker

Save money by cooking dried chickpeas in the pressure cooker~ cheaper than buying can chickpeas.


 I love how easy it is to cook dry chickpeas in a pressure cooker. I used to cook my beans in the slow cooker but that all changed when I bought a pressure cooker, which also goes by the name of Instant Pot. Cooking beans or chickpeas in a pressure cooker takes less than an hour compared to 6 hours in a slow cooker. So the time thing is why I love using my pressure cooker instead of my slow cooker. The chickpeas or garbanzo beans have the same great taste too. When you cook the chickpeas they do not have any salt or preservatives on them nor is there the worry of things like BPA and other can food dangers.



I use chickpeas in many recipes
 I admit that I sometimes use canned chickpeas and keep a couple of cans in my pantry for emergencies when I am hungry and don't want to wait even an hour for my garbanzo beans to cook. So when I do cook a batch of dried chickpeas in my pressure cooker, I always double the recipe and freeze the extra chickpeas. I like to freeze the cooked chickpeas in batches of 1-2 cups so I can just thaw them and use them in recipes like my homemade red pepper hummus. These delicious beans freeze so well and taste great too. Cooking dried chickpeas is also a money saver. One pound dried garbanzo beans is equal to about 4 cans of chickpeas. So you are saving lots of money!




Chickpeas make a great vegan tuna salad

One of my favorite ways to use chickpeas is in vegan tuna salad. This plant-based recipe looks and tastes just like tuna salad but contains no real tuna so it is a perfect vegetarian recipe for a meatless meal. You have to try this recipe! I also love to roast cooked garbanzo beans for a tasty snack that is so easy to make. Homemade roasted garbanzo beans are so delicious and are a heart-healthy snack.

  12. I feel kinda stupid, lol. I didn't know you could buy dry chickpeas and cook them. I've only seen them in a can. I bet these taste a lot better. I know other beans I make taste much better when I make them from dry beans in the pressure cooker.

    I like chickpeas but I get the ones that are already precooked. I guess the dry ones cooked in a pressure cooker would be better, because it would not have as much salt as the canned ones, and no preservatives too!
