Marta Tovaglieri, blogger on Una Streghetta in Cucina, presents a recipes that adpats very well to a quick dinner or a buffet with lots of friends.
This is how they're made:
Depending on the time you have available, you may decide to use dried chickpeas, and soak and cook them, or you may prefer to use ones that are already cooked.
Cut the shallot and fry it in a little oil in a hot non-stick pan.
Add the chickpeas and sauté them in the flavoured oil.
Transfer to the cup of an immersion blender and add 3 tablespoons of water and 5-6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Purée, then season with salt and pepper.
Place two teaspoons of chickpea cream in the bottom of each glass.
Separately, mix the Fresco Spalmabile with a drop of oil and black pepper and place this mixture in a piping bag, then squeeze it on the chickpeas to cover the entire surface.
Chop the hazelnuts with a knife and add them to the glasses.
Serve and enjoy!
