Method

  • Peel and dice the onions, dice the red pepper and cut the tomatoes into wedges.
  • Wash, peel and cut into slices the carrots and place in an oven tray with the onions, red pepper and tomatoes. Season well with the salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Roast the vegetables for 15 minutes at 220c.
  • While the vegetables are roasting, peel and chop the garlic.
  • Pour the chicken stock in a saucepan and bring to simmer with the chopped garlic and the cooked chickpeas, let simmer for 5 minutes and pass the stock.
