Drain your soaked chickpeas and tip them into a pan. Add cold water until you have twice the volume of the chickpeas. Bring the water to a boil, then turn the heat down and simmer the chickpeas for 45 mins (if you are going to cook them further in another dish) or up to 1 hour. Taste to see if they are tender.
