How to Cook Garbanzo Beans?

Cooking garbanzo beans yourself is a healthy alternative to eating them out of a can, which has plenty of sodium. First you need to soak the beans by measuring one cup of dry beans, and pick out any bad beans. Pour three cups of water over the beans and let to sit overnight. Drain and place beans in a pot and cover with water and seasoning. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Cook until tender.
