  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped

  • 2 cups dried chick-peas, soaked then cooked until tender

  • 6 cups of water

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 1 tsp dried, crushed rosemary

  • 1 tsp dried basil

  1. Heat 3 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large soup pot. Add onion, oregano, rosemary, basil, and bay leaves - saute until onions are translucent.
