Aubergine & black chickpea orecchiette


Method

Soak the chickpeas overnight, then drain and cook according to the packet instructions, until soft. Make the Orecchiette. Trim the aubergine and courgette and chop into 2cm dice, then peel and finely slice the onion. Cook the veg in a large frying pan on a medium-high heat with the oil for 15 minutes, or until soft, stirring occasionally. Drain the chickpeas reserving the liquor.

Cook over a low heat for 8 more minutes, then taste and season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper.
