1. Drain the chickpeas and place in a saucepan. Cover with cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat for about 45 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside to cool.
2. Preheat a heavy frying pan or griddle pan over a high heat. Brush the courgettes with olive oil and char-grill for 1–2 minutes each side, until tender.
3. Arrange the courgettes on a serving plate, scatter over the chickpeas, goat’s cheese and marjoram. Season to taste, drizzle with the remaining olive oil and serve immediately, with lemon wedges for squeezing over.
