How to Make Basic and Plain Chickpeas in VitaClay Best Instant Crock Pot?

Really simple and easy!

Here is how to make soaked chickpeas-

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound dried chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • Water
  • Salt, optional
  • Bay leaf, garlic cloves, onion or carrot, optional

Directions:

  1. Rinse┬ádried chickpeas in running water┬áwith strainer and add a large bowl and cover with several inches of filtered water. As the beans rehydrate, they triple in size ÔÇö adding plenty of water is key. Soak the beans 8 hours or overnight. Drain and rinse. If you want beans to be soaked faster, add a boiled water in chickpeas┬áand let the beans sit in the water for 1or 2 hours. Drain and rinse.
  2. Add the soaked, drained and rinsed beans to your Vitaclay pot and cover with several inches of water. Set on Stew or Fast to cook for 40 minutes or an hour. (Note, if you use VM7800 large stock pot, add water to bean ratio as 3 to 1--3 cups water per cup of soaked beans. DO NOT cook longer than 1 hour on Fast setting. Leave it in WARM for additional minutes will further soften the beans until desired texture. Or you may set it on Slow to cook longer for 1.5 hours)
