For this recipe you need to cook dried chickpeas, so you need to soak them before. I put them in a bowl with plenty of cold water at night before going to bed, so the next day they are ready to be cooked. If you have not time you can buy them already cooked :-)
Dried chickpeas, parsley, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper if desired. For the breading you can either use the breadcrumbs or the cornmeal. Valeriana for garnish.
Measure out the ingredients as desired, depending on the needs and personal taste. If you think you need an opinion on the amount, ask me as well.
Put the chickpeas in a large pot with water. Turn on the stove and cook the chickpeas for at least an hour or more, refer to the manufacturer. Once cooked, drain the chickpeas. Turn the oven to 180 degrees. Put in the mixer the parsley and the garlic, and chop finely. Add the chickpeas in the mixer, a little oil, salt and little water if needed. Operate until all the mixture is homogeneous and compact to roll it out. Remove it from the mixer, taste and adjust salt and pepper (if you like). Take some of the compound in the hands, form into balls and dip in breadcrumbs or cornmeal. Place the chickpea balls on a baking pan covered with baking paper, bake and wait until the chickpea balls showing golden, then turn off the oven and take out of the oven and ............ at the table.
Thanks for the support.
