Place the chickpeas in a large bowl and cover them completely with tap water. Leave them to soak for approximately 10 hours. Rinse thoroughly and cover with water again. We recommend not adding salt because the chickpeas may become tough. Bring that water to a boil and cook for approximately 60-75 minutes, skimming off any foam from the surface if necessary. Drained and rinse the chickpeas before placing them aside to cool.
