Revithia me Kolokytha (Slow-Cooked Chickpeas)
By: Aglaia Kremezi
Chickpeas are commonly flavoured with Seville orange, a bitter variety grown on Crete.
- 2 cups dried chickpeas
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for garnish
- 2½ cups chopped onions
- 1 tablespoon Aleppo pepper or ¾ teaspoon crushed
- red pepper
- 1½ tablespoons sea salt
- 1½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth or no-chicken broth
- 1 cup coarsely chopped celery leaves, plus more for garnish
- 2 4-inch strips orange zest
- 5 cups chopped butternut squash (1-inch)
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- Place chickpeas in a large bowl with enough cold water to cover by 3 inches. Let soak for
8 to 24 hours.
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Rinse the chickpeas. Transfer to a medium bowl and toss with baking soda.
- Heat oil in a large ovenproof pot over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 4 minutes. Stir in the chickpeas, Aleppo (or crushed red pepper) and salt; cook for 30 seconds. Add broth, celery leaves and orange zest. Bring to a boil over high heat, then remove from heat. Cover the pot with a double layer of foil and put the lid on.
- Reduce oven temperature to 300°. Bake the chickpeas until very tender, about 4 hours. Stir in squash, lemon juice and mustard; bake until the squash is tender, about 1 hour more.
- Serve drizzled with more oil and topped with more celery leaves, if desired.
