1 can of TRATA sardines piquant in vegetable oil
400 gr chick peas
2 bay leaves
2 finely chopped onions
1.5 l hot water
2 diced tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic
2 finely chopped carrots
2 diced peppers
2 branches of celery
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 lemon
Salt and pepper

Boil the chick peas, prepare the sauce, and then cook everything together in a pan with a lid that can be used in the oven. Place the chick peas in a large pot, add triple their weight in cold water, and let them soak. This process takes several hours; the chick peas will soften and triple in volume. When the chick peas are ready, place them in a pot with fresh water and boil them for approximately one hour until they soften. Drain them and keep the water. Place 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the onion and garlic in a frying pan, add salt, cover, and simmer until the onion has become soft. Add the carrots, the celery, the peppers, the tomato, and a little of the water used to boil the chick peas, and let the sauce mix together.
