Easy Chickpeas


Easy ones not because one would use canned chickpeas, but instead of the cooking method (pressure cooker) where all ingredients are mixed and added to the cooker, and half an hour later you get the most flavourful ‘stewed’ chickpeas.    


Have a look below at the full recipe and don’t forget that you can always print it.
