How to Cook Dried Chickpeas (Ultimate Guide)

There are four simple methods for cooking chickpeas. The first two make use of the stove, the third uses a slow cooker, and the fourth method uses a pressure cooker. We use all methods in our kitchen and the one we choose will usually depend on timing. The long soak allows you to get most of the prep time done overnight. The quick soak allows you to start with dried beans and finish with cooked in about 3 hours and the slow cooker is hands-off.

*If you use the slow cooker method, there is no need to soak the dried beans.
