How to cook chickpeas / garbanzo beans
One of the biggest bummers is when your quinoa comes out mushy or burned. After many sad batches of quinoa, I think I finally found the Golden Ratio!
While you can definitely use a rice cooker or Instant Pot, quinoa cooks so quickly you really only need a saucepan, or small dutch, oven and 20 minutes!
I prefer cooking in cast iron pans, like ones from Le Creuset, but if that's not in the budget or wrist strength (they are a workout), any ol pan will do.
The key is not too much water in the pan, or too high of heat!
And most importantly, to take the pot off the heat once the water has mostly absorbed, and let it steam, covered for 5 more minutes.
How to cook this nutritious and versatile basic. Easy instructions insure you get perfectly cooked chickpeas every time. Save money on all your recipes, and taste the difference with these fresh, from scratch beans!
