CHICKPEA-SOUP - Greek style chick-pea soup
     I got this recipe from a Greek cookbook. It is 
the standard
     way of cooking chick peas in Greece.
INGREDIENTS (serves 4)
     1 lb      chick peas
     2 Tbsp    baking soda
     3-4       small onions (chopped)
     3/4 cup   olive oil
     2 tsp     salt
               lemon juice
          (1)  Soak the chick peas in water overnight.
          (2)  Drain the chick peas and sprinkle the 
baking soda
               on them. Stir them a little and let them 
stand for
               one hour.
          (3)  Rinse the chick peas with plenty of water. 
               them in a pot and cover them with water. 
               them to a boil, then lower heat to medium.
          (4)  Skim off the scum that forms on the surface, 
               then add the onions. Cover, and cook 
on low heat
               for about two hours or until the chick 
peas are
               soft.  (If necessary, add some hot water 
into the
               pot while the chick peas are cooking).
          (5)  Add the olive oil and salt, and cook 
for a few
               more minutes.
          (6)  Serve with a dash of lemon juice, plenty 
of fresh
               bread and, if you like, a chunk of feta 
cheese on
               the side.
     At step 3 you're supposed to remove the skin off 
the chick
     peas. I was never able to do it (it comes off only 
with some
     difficulty, and you have to do it for each individual 
     but it doesn't seem to affect the dish adversely.
     You know that the soup is done when the chick peas 
begin to
     dissolve, making the soup rather thick. This might 
not give
     the dish a very attractive appearance, but the 
taste is an
     entirely different matter.
     Difficulty: easy.  Time: overnight soak, 2-3 hours 
     Precision: no need to measure.
