  1. The previous evening place the chickpeas in plenty of water and allow them to soak and soften.
  2. The following morning, rinse them well, rubbing them gently to loosen their skins.
  3. Place them in a lidded clay casserole dish.
  4. Add the chopped onion, olive oil, the bay leaf and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Fill the pot with water. It is very important to enough, so that chickpeas are entirely covered by water.
