We all know that buying things in a can is convenient but not necessarily the best decision.
I have always wanted to try to cook dried beans but have been discouraged because of the time it takes to do so. Not anymore! I didn't realize just how easy this method was until I tried it. Lesson learned: don't be afraid to try new things in the kitchen!
How to Cook Chickpeas in your Crockpot
What you will need
1- 14oz bag of dried chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
7 cups of water
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Start bypouring the dry beans in a strainer, sort through them and discard any "bad beans".
Next, place the water, chickpeas, and baking soda in a the crockpot. Cover and cook on high heat for 4 hours, or low heat for 7 to 8 hours, or until tender.
Drain and serve immediately, or use in desired dish.
Remember, because they were not preserved in a can they are unseasoned, use in a dish or season to your liking before serving.
Chickpeas freeze very well, simply place them in a large freezer zip-top bag and lay it flat in your freezer, use within 3-4 months.
You can also refrigerate them in a tupperware container, use within 3-5 days.
