Quinoa and Garbanzo Bowl

This meal was put together in just a couple of minutes. I had prepared quinoa and garbanzo beans in the instant pot earlier in the day. Because most of the prep was already done I was able to put this together in a flash.

Layer in your favorite bowl starting with the quinoa. Add the remaining ingredients.

Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

Instant Pot Garbanzo Beans

This is probably the easiest and quickest way to make garbanzo beans, or any type of beans. It only has two ingredients. How easy is that?

I made this small batch because it was just me and I wanted a neutral flavor so I could add the garbanzo beans to any flavor profile.

  • 1 c dried garbanzo beans
  • 2 1/2 c vegetable broth

I first soaked the garbanzo beans overnight, almost 24 hours. To soak them I start them in hot water.  I learned the hard way that starting the soak with hot water helps to tenderize them.

Rinse beans.

Add beans and vegetable broth to instant pot. Cook according to your instant pot directions. I cooked mine for 30 minutes. They came out perfect with just the right bite to them, and in only 30 minutes.
