So today, I have spent 4 hours waiting for legumes to re-hydrate. I could just buy canned version, but this has no added sodium and a fraction of the cost.
Usually I soak the beans overnight. But today I did the "quick soak"
At this point they either need to sit in a crock pot for 4-8 hours, or simmer on low about 2 hours.
I added 3-4 cloves of garlic, but otherwise, no other ingredients until they re-hydrate.
This was about 2 pounds of beans ( 3 scoops from the bulk scoop = 4 cups) for about $1.50.
3 cups of dry garbanzo beans - $1.24
I cooked this longer than usual ( 2 hour simmer) and removed as many of the chick pea skins as possible ( maybe 70%), Best hummus ever.
I put 3 cloves of garlic into the cooking liquid and 1 into the final result.
