You guys use canned garbanzo's? I see no benefit to soaking and cooking just to make some hummus.

Yeah, I use the canned organic garbanzos from Trader Joe's.  Very tasty!

It's easy to use dried chick peas, just bust out the slow cooker. turn them on in the morning and they are done at night. or turn them on in the evening and they are done in the morning. no soak needed that way.
No soak, huh? Nice. Same amount of water?

you can add some extra water. make sure they are covered by 2 inches of water at least. 3 is better. The cooking liquor will not be as thick and rich as the can liquor but it still tastes good and is a good liquid addition to the hummus if you need to thin it out a bit.

I always do my chickpeas in the pressure-cooker, but the chickpeas have to soak for at least 24 hours with plenty of water changes. All my beans get the soak and rinse method. I've find that it cuts way down on the flatulence. And garbanzos are the most flatulent of the all the beans! I also rinse the can-liquor off- it makes for a fresher and tastier hummus.

there is that...

I guess growing up vegetarian you have a different threshold when it comes to 'too much' flatulence. :o

Are you talking about the pressure cooker or the soak and rinse? Not that it matters much, we've never had that problem with them. Maybe it's because we use chickpeas instead of garbonzo beans.  ;)

The soak gets rid of much of the polysaccharides that cause farting.

And chickpeas are garbanzo beans. Same thing.
