Why you should soak chickpeas before cooking
Chickpeas or Garbanzo beans are high in fiber and protein. I have observed from my experience that dry chickpeas which have been soaked has a better taste and texture than canned chickpeas.
But, before cooking chickpeas it is important that you soak them overnight or for at least 8-9 hours.
Soaked chickpeas are softer and mushier. And, that's exactly the kind of chickpeas which you'll need for your chocolate hummus.
The best thing about Hummus is that it stores really well. You can refrigerate your hummus below 40°F after every use to keep it safe.
BUT make sure that you store hummus in a tightly sealed container to keep out moisture and other contaminants. You can store your homemade chocolate hummus for up to 5-6 days in the refrigerator.
You can also freeze your hummus. Frozen hummus stays fresh for up to 3-months, provided you keep it safely.
You can thaw it overnight in the refrigerator and then use it.
