. Difficulty: Medium . Doses: 4 people . Preparation time: 2 hours

Ingredients

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

Preparation

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.
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).
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".
