Traditional Greek Recipes: Revithia sto fourno (Oven Baked Chickpeas)


Revithia sto fourno, baked chickpeas, is something everyone must make at least once – it’s just that good. Using only five of the most ordinary of ingredients, this positively perfect authentic, rustic peasant dish is a cinch to make for the modern home cook.


  • 250gr of dried chickpeas (soaked overnight and boiled for one hour or until tender. Drain but save the liquid)
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
  • 2 tsp salt & fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 ½ cups of chopped onions


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200°c. Using your casserole dish, create a layer with onions and crushed rosemary, salt & pepper. Next, add a layer of cooked chickpeas.
  2. Add 3 cups of the saved liquid and the extra virgin olive oil. Stir gently to combine slightly, with the aim of leaving the onions on the bottom.
  3. Cook for 2 hours loosely covered and then uncovered for additional 30mins (total cooking time — 2 1/2 hrs)

Serve as a main dish, accompanied by smoked trout, olives or feta cheese and fresh bread.
