Canned beans are incredibly convenient. Nothing, however, beats the flavor and texture of cooked-from-scratch beans. Once you get into a rhythm of cooking beans/chickpeas from scratch, you'll find it effortless and satisfying.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Place the Dried Chickpeas (1 pound) in a large bowl and cover with water by at least 3 inches. Add the Kosher Salt (3 tablespoon) and stir to dissolve. Let sit at room temperature overnight or for 8-10 hours at least.
Step 2
Drain chickpeas, rinse and place in a pot with the Onion (1), Fresh Thyme (3 sprig), Garlic (1 clove), Bay Leaf (1) and Kosher Salt (1 1/2 teaspoon). Cover with water by three inches.
Step 3
Bring to a boil, then lower heat and cook at a gentle simmer for about 45 minutes or until the beans are cooked through. Add water as need to ensure the chickpeas are completely covered with water the entire time.
Step 4
Let beans cool in their cooking liquid. Discard thyme sprigs, bay leaf, and onion. Store beans in their cooking liquid for 5-7 days in the fridge and many months in the freezer. Use as desired in any recipes calling for chickpeas.
