Instant Pot chickpeas, affordable and so convenient. A great way of cooking chickpeas that only requires 2 ingredients: chickpeas and water!
1 cup dried chickpeas (180 g)
3 cups water (720 g), plus extra water if you’re going to soak them
Add the chickpeas to a bowl and cover with water, ensuring they’re well submerged (about 3 inches of water or 7-8 cm). Soak for at least 8 hours (ideally overnight) at room temperature. This step is optional if you go for the no-soak method.
The next day, drain the chickpeas. Omit this step if you go for the no-soak method.
Add the chickpeas to the Instant Pot and cover with the water.
Place the lid on your Instant Pot, set the valve to the “sealing” position, press the “pressure cook” or “manual” button, and set the pressure to high. Then cook for 15 minutes (soaked method) or for 50 minutes (no-soak method).
Natural release for 15 minutes and then carefully move the valve to the “venting” position and let the pressure release completely.
