Boil the chickpeas according to the instructions on the package. I did it last night.
Before cooking, soak the chickpeas in cold water for at least 4 hours. (Soaking reduces the cooking time of chickpeas and makes them softer). Place the washed chickpeas in a 1: 5 pot of water and bring to a boil. Cook for 10 minutes on high heat, and then until tender 50-60 minutes on low heat. Add salt at the end of cooking, as it slows down the cooking process.
