This was my first time making any type of bean/legume in the pressure cooker, and I will admit, I was a skeptic at first! I'm amazed at how tender these chickpeas turned out. I thought they would be raw and undercooked, but they were perfect. I seasoned them with cumin and tossed them in a salad. Perfection!

I love this recipe! I never remember to soak my beans overnight. I cooked the beans as instructed and the result was perfectly cooked chickpeas. I made hummus for a party, quick and in a pinch. Saved me so much time! Definitely going to do this again soon.
