"Revithada" aka the Classic Chickpeas Soup with a twist

Is there anyone who doesn't love chickpeas? Rich in fiber, minerals, and a variety of vitamins, not to mention their high consistency in protein. What makes this dish unique is the caramelized onions that blend in perfectly with the lemon & herb flavors.

Serves 4


2 cups dried chickpeas
6 onions
3 carrots
Fresh or dried oregano & thyme
Homemade bone broth (optional)
Juice of 2 lemons
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper


  1. Soak the chickpeas in salted water overnight
  2. Wash and drain
  3. Boil the chickpeas in water for about 1 hr or until halfway through and drain
  4. Cut the onions in rounds and place them at the bottom of your cast iron cocotte
  5. Add the chickpeas on top, salt & pepper, the herbs, carrot, and olive oil.
  6. Add 2 cups of homemade bone broth or water.
  7. Put your cocotte in a preheated oven at 200C for about 1 hour.
  8. Take the cocotte out of the oven and add the lemon juice and 1 cup of water.
  9. Put back in the oven for one more hour.
