Writing this how-to I assumed you've used a pressure cooker before. If you have not, learn how. Pressure cookers have improved safety vastly in the past few years, save lots of time and energy and are very versatile. I learned a LOT from Miss Vickie'swebsite and you can too!
You will needPressure cooker with rack. Med stainless or glass bowl with high sides. Timer.
Ingredients1/2 c garbanzo beans (chickpeas) soaked for 8 hours or more. 6 cups water.
Do thisPut 4 cups water in bottom of pressure cooker with rack inside. Rinse soaked beans and place in bowl with 2 cups water. Place bowl with beans and water in cooker on top of rack. Put the top on and seal your cooker. Set timer for 30 minutes. Bring your cooker up to pressure at high heat then turn heat down only enough so it stays at pressure. When timer goes off release pressure under running cold water, being careful not to block steam vent. Open the cooker, carefully remove the extremely hot bowl containing the cooked beans. Drain and serve beans as desired.
