Tips for making Instant Pot Chickpea Soup:

  • Soaking the chickpeas beforehand is not required, but if you are sensitive to legumes and want to lessen the chances of digestive discomfort, soak for 3-4 hours before making this soup. No time adjustments are necessary!
  • You can replace the crushed tomatoes with diced or freshly chopped tomatoes.
  • You can omit or add any veggies of your choice.
  • If you do not like a touch of spicy, omit the red chili flakes.

  • This chickpea soup stores well in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to one week. Simply reheat on the ‘saute’ setting of your Instant Pot or pressure cooker until warmed throughout.
