Dried garbanzo beans purchased from the store can be time consuming to prepare as the beans need to be soaked before they are cooked. Canned chickpeas are a fast alternative that can also be dehydrated to promote longer storage times. Dehydrated chickpeas are also ideal for camping, as the beans can be cooked in a matter of minutes with boiling water from a campfire. Garbanzo beans can be easily prepared for dehydration, and the method is helpful for stocking up on dry goods.

    Preheat the oven to 60 to 65.6 degrees Celsius.

    Lightly grease a grill pan with cooking oil.

    Drain the chickpeas in the strainer and rinse. Pat them dry with a towel.

  4. 4

    Spread the garbanzo beans on the grill pan in a single layer, then place the pan on the centre rack of the oven.

  5. 5

    Prop the door open at least 4 inches for circulation. Let the beans dry for 6 to 8 hours.

Tips and warnings

  • Alternatively, garbanzo beans can be dried in a dehydrator. Follow the specific instructions for your machine.
  • For large loads place a large fan in front of the oven to increase heat circulation. You'll also need to rotate the pans, if multiple pans are used.
