Servings: 5 cups
Notes: Dried chickpeas take time to soften, why I cook them up ahead of time. Make them in the Instant Pot or on the stovetop along with just water. Remember, you can always refrigerate or freeze these chickpeas in 5-cup batches to pull out and use more easily. They will last 1 week in the fridge and up to 3 months in the freezer.
Or, use 5 cups of canned, drained chickpeas, 2 (15 oz.) cans. 2 cups of dried chickpeas when soaked 1 hour in hot, boiling water = 4 cups and = 4 1/4 cups when soaked overnight in room temperature water. Cooked, you'll have about 5 cups.
