Words cannot describe the singular taste of this unique pie that features a puff pastry crust and mashed chickpea filling; instead, you will have to make it for yourself (and your lucky family and friends) to see just how good it really is. The chickpeas lend a subtle nutty flavor without tasting like chickpeas. Once it's spread into the crust, the filling is sprinkled with a liberal amount of powdered sugar to ensure it gets crispy on top.

  • 25 grams flour
  • 125 grams chickpeas (cooked and mashed)
