The Quick-Soaking Method

  1. Put beans in a pot and cover them with 2 inches of water.
  2. Place pot on high heat and bring water to boil.
  3. After beans have boiled uncovered for 2 minutes, cover the pot and remove from heat.
  4. Allow beans to sit for 1 hour (chickpeas will take a bit longer).
  5. Beans are ready to cook!

Oven Cooking
