Separation anxiety?

With canned chickpeas, your beans are ready to rinse. If you prefer to prepare dried beans for hummus, separate the chickpeas from their skins during the preparation process. 

No worries. After an overnight water soak, bring chickpeas to a full boil in the water in which they’ve soaked, stirring occasionally, for two to three hours, until soft. During boiling, many of the beans should separate from the skins. For those that don’t, a gentle rub will lift the skin from your fiber-filled garbanzo beans.
