Instant Pot Chickpeas, No Soak (Vegan, GF, High Protein)

These Instant Pot Chickpeas no soak required come out perfectly cooked, tender, and are ready in about an hour from dried chickpeas.  An easy and protein packed snack to keep in the fridge to add to soups, salads, or any dish!

I love using my Instant Pot for quickly cooking dried beans –  and these chickpeas turn out amazing every time!  I always have tons of dried beans in my cupboard, part of my Pantry Stocking 101 game plan, and chickpeas are a favorite!  I love making hummus, adding cooked chickpeas to wraps, soups, and salads.  Great for using chickpeas in meal prep or recipes to make ahead!

These Instant Pot Chickpeas Are:

  • High in protein
  • Healthy
  • Soft and Tender
  • High carb and low fat (HCLF)
  • Ready in under an hour in the Instant Pot
  • Versatile: once cooked you can add a handful of chickpeas to almost any dish (even dessert!)

Of all the beans out there, I feel chickpeas are one of the most versatile.  They are lusciously creamy when blended, but can hold their own in a stew or soup.  One of the awesome things about this method of cooking chickpeas is that you can use the cooking water, known as aquafaba, in other recipes!

Whats In these No Soak Instant Pot Chickpeas?

  • Dried Chickpeas
  • Water

You can add spices or bay leaves if you like!  But those 2 ingredients are all ya need to have perfectly cooked chickpeas.  If you are planning to use the cooking liquid (aquafaba) after, don’t add spices or salt.

How Do I Make Unsoaked Chickpeas in the Instant Pot?

  1. Rinse and sort the chickpeas, discarding any broken bits or small stones.
  2. Add the chickpeas and the water to the instant pot.  Set on Manual or High Pressure to cook for 45 minutes.  Natural release when time is up, which takes about 15 minutes.
  3. Drain the chickpeas, but save the water (aquafaba) which can be used to thicken other recipes.
