Recipes to Rival Beans, Beans the magical fruit...



When I saw the recipes we had to try for this month's challenge I was really happy as we all love chick peas in every form. I didn't imagine I was going to prepare them on the last possible day though !!
Anyway to make chickpeas the stars of the day we had pasta e ceci for lunch and I prepared the dough for the fritters as well as the felafel



and something very tipical of Liguria and Nice : Farinata di ceci (Socca in french).
But the felafel and the Farinata will be ready for dinner so I will add more photos later !!



I think I put too much water in the fritters dough so when I tried to fry it it spread everywhere and , even if the kids really enjoied the paper thin fritters, when I couldn't anymore fish the tiny bits of fritters in the panI decided to bake them. And they liked them as well....

A few of mine turned out pretty, and those are the ones I took a picture of. My family liked these too - I had to move fast to get a picture!
