Chick pea soup is a healthy and nutricious food, so easy to cook... It is relished especially in the winter months.


400 gr. chick peas
1 tablespoon of baking soda
1 big onion, finely chopped
3-4 tablespoons of rice
2 teaspoons of corn starch
juice of 1 lemon
salt & pepper
4-5 tablespoons of olive oil

Cover chick-peas with plenty of water and leave overnight to soak. Next day drain away the water. Put them in a pot, add the baking soda and enough cold water to cover them (about 5-6 big cups) and stir well. Bring to a boil, add the onion, salt and pepper and let simmer for about 40 minutes. Then, add the rice. After about 10 minutes or when chick-peas and rice are done, dissolve the corn starch in the lemon juice and pour the mixture in the soup. Bring to a boil again for 1-2 minutes. At the end, add the olive oil and serve


It is served hot with olives and bread.
It can be served as an appetizer before a full course meal.


Bravo Katerina, your chick-peas'recipe was fantastic! Full of taste, oh la la, the lemon juice added the flavor of Greece! My little son was trying for the first time, and he asked to repeat the dish.... Philippe de Roy
