Soaking chickpeas? Something went wrong...

korrie | Apr 27, 2013 11:32 AM

I just soaked chickpeas overnight, for about 14 hours. They are still hard and expanded minimally.

Is this normal? Do they stay hard until I cook them? This is my first dried chickpeas experience, but I've soaked many types of beans before, so I'm confused.

Thanks for any help!
