1 lb Chick Peas
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Parsley flakes
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tablespoon Mr. Goudas Trinidad Hot Sauce
Soak chick peas overnight in water and baking soda.
Next day, drain off water and thoroughly rinse the chick peas.
Check for stones or any foreign objects.
In a medium sized pot 2/3 filled with water, add chick peas, cover and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium and continue boiling for approximately 1 hour.
Chop the onions into wedges and add together with the olive oil, hot sauce, parsley, the juice of 1 lemon, salt and pepper to taste.
At this point, you may remove a pot spoon full of chick peas and transfer it to a plate.
Using a fork, crush them and return the ground chick peas to the pot.
This adds thickness for the soup.
Reduce heat and allow to simmer for an additional 30 minutes or until chick peas are tender to your taste.
Remove from heat.
Serve with lemon slices, fresh bread, Feta Cheese and olives.
Enjoy the versatility of the chick pea.
This is a very simple method of preparing this wonderful dish and we suggest that sometimes you give it a try.
However, if you are feeling a little under the weather, or time is of essence, then we suggest that you open a can of Mr. Goudas Chick Peas Soup which does not contain any MSG.
In my opinion, sins and I have been in the business for 40 years and I produce 1,000 products from all over the world, the word MSG is not part of my vocabulary.
In fact, the mere thought of the word, gives me goose bumps.
Heat it up and enjoy!
From our house to yours with love!
