1 Tablespoon Ground Garlic

1 Tablespoon Ground Onion

1 Tablespoon Cumin

3/4 Tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes

2 Pounds of Dry Chickpeas aka Garbanzo Beans

Rinse and drain chickpeas with clean water and place in Instant Pot. I use this awesome bean / grain rinser.

Add remaining ingredients.

Fill Instant Pot with water to max fill line.

The beans will cook faster if you use boiling hot water.

I have so much fun using this to divert steam from my Instant Pot. Mine is a steam breathing dragon!

I have this at my kitchen sink for access to instant hot water.

I like to make ahead, several, individual batches of spice blends for this and other recipes. I put them in these containers.

Cook on Manual for 40 minutes. 

Natural Pressure Release.

Drain cooked chickpeas into colander over a large bowl and save liquid for other recipes such as Black Beans.

I use this to grab the Instant Pot liner. Very useful, especially when it is hot!

You may freeze liquid into silicone ice cube trays for easy storage.

  1. It says to cook for 40 mins but which way? Is it manual? Which setting on the Instant pot? I have the 6 Quart size Duo. Thank you ❤️

  2. Hi

    Not to be a pain at all… but can you please link to the red microwave pan for the chickpea crunch recipe. I e been looking and looking for it. Thanks in advance!

      1. This is not the same pan you show in your interview with AJ. I ordered it and it is for cooking bacon in the microwave, no holes for air circulation.

      2. Sorry for that. I tried roasting chickpeas on a microwave safe plate and it works well. Just be sure to use a pot holder when removing. Mix around with a spoon, half way through cooking. Time varies as microwaves have different wattage.

  3. Where can I buy the red crisping tray for use in microwave to crisp chickpeas? I don’t see the link anywhere. Thank youuu!!

    1. I am also unable to find it now. You could use a microwave safe plate. Be sure to use pot holders after cooking as plate may be hot. Be Strong, Be Well and Be Green!
