    Chef Danilo Angé


    • 450 g soaked chickpeas (overnight)
    • 40 g grated Grana Padano, over 16 months
    • 4 hamburger buns (80g each)
    • 40 g Grana Padano cheese rind, over 16 months
    • 80 g spring leaf salad
    • 20 g of extra virgin olive oil
    • Salt & pepper


    STEP 1

    Cover the soaked chickpeas with cold water and simmer for 1 1/2 hours then drain.
    Blend half of them then mix in the rest of the beans, Grana Padano, salt and pepper.
    Spread on a baking sheet to cool.

    STEP 2

    Scrape and brush the Grana Padano cheese rinds, cut them into small cubes then microwave them for 1 minute so that they will double in volume (like popcorn).

    STEP 3

    With the help of a pastry ring of the diameter of the buns, cut out the hamburgers from the chickpea mixture and fry them with a little oil until golden.
    Cut the buns in half, toast them under the grill and serve with the chickpea burger, spring leaf salad and cheese “popcorn”.
