Ingredients

50g (2oz) dried chick peas

2 tbsps olive oil

600g (11/2 lbs) courgettes

2 onions

2 large garlic cloves

4 ripe tomatoes

salt and pepper

Method

Put the chick peas in a pan, cover with boiling water and soak for a couple of hours. Drain, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Cook until the chick peas are soft, about a further hour.

Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Peel and chop the onions, peel and crush the garlic cloves, chop the courgettes into chunks, discarding the ends, and add to the pan with the onions and garlic. Fry over moderate heat until starting to soften. Peel the tomatoes and chop, add to the pan with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook over gentle heat for a further 15 minutes. Add the chick peas, stir well and serve hot.
