How to Cook Garbanzo Beans
These powerful beans more than double in size when cooked! Soak 1 cup of beans overnight in 4 cups of water and then boil for an hour. Looking to shorten your soak time? Try bringing the dried beans to a boil and letting them sit for an hour or so. Then bring to a boil until cooked all the way through. When your beans are cooked it is important to rinse them under cold water to prevent carry over cooking and your garbanzo beans from turning to mush.
Forgot to soak your garbanzo beans? Simply add the garbanzo beans, the amount of water listed on the package with ¼ teaspoon of baking soda (to help soften the beans) and cook on low in a crockpot or slow cooker for 6 to 8 hours, or on high for 4 hours. Another great way to cook garbanzo beans is to use a pressure cooker.
Since cooking garbanzo beans can be time intensive we recommend cooking large batches at once and freezing what you don’t use. Garbanzo beans freeze very well and freezing your dried garbanzo beans makes them as convenient as canned! They can be stored in the freezer using plastic containers or durable freezer bags once they are cooked.
