Hello!

I have a recipe up that calls for 1 16oz can of chickpeas. However, I am pretty sure that the contents of said can aren't actually 16 oz.

But maybe they are! Any chance anyone out there has a can o' chix they'd be willing to crack open and weigh and/or measure? It would help me in my quest to make dinner with dried, not canned, chix. I would be so grateful to you...

I think a can is just under 2 cups? since 8 oz = 1 cup, but you have to take out the liquid. i would say maybe 1 3/4 ish cups?

it's basically a cup and a half of cooked chickpeas. that 8oz thing doesn't apply to chickpeas.

I usually make a cup of the dried stuff up. When it is cooked I usually use a cup of the chickpeas for each tin on the recipe. Then I use whatever is left over for salads for my lunch.

if the can says it's 16oz then it is. or very close. Do you need a weight of the chickpeas without the liquid? if so, you could measure it into a liquid measuring cup and the volume in fluid oz should be approximately the same weight in oz. then subtract that from 16.

Nevermind, i didn't realize you didn't actually have a can of chickpeas yourself.


ANYWAY, tell us the recipe you're using? that might help. or...just look up a conversion of volume from dried to cooked chickpeas and then measure. What recipe is it that this needs such chickpea precision?

Yes, I need the weight without H20 -- no, I do not have a can of chickpeas --

The recipe itself is somewhat irrelevant... per the suggestions, I'm sure could just use about 1 1/2c. chickpeas and be fine. I just like accuracy and honestly, I wish recipes that called for cans of things included weight as well. No bigs if I can't get the data before dinner or nuthin', tho...

sorry, i'm not being super helpful.
According to the internet. 1 cup of dried chickpeas equals 2 cups of cooked. So, if a 16oz can is 1.5 cups of chickpeas then you'd need 3/4 cup dried to make the equivalent of a 16oz can.

My can of TJ chickpeas says that the drained weight is 10 oz for a 15 oz can.

Also, I find that a can of chickpeas is a generous 1.5 cups. Less than 2 cups, but more than 1.5.

According to the nutrition info, it's 1.75 cups (3.5 servings of 1/2 cup each).

As someone that cooks with dried beans all the time, my general rule is 1/2c. dried = 1 1/2c. cooked = roughly 1 can of beans.
