Chickpeas, Fennel bulb, chocolate chips, oven

This unconventional recipe combines chickpeas, fennel, and chocolate to create a harmonious union of flavors that will surprise and delight your taste buds.


  • 1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
  • 2 medium fennel bulbs, sliced
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Cooking spray or oil, for the oven


  1. Get your bloody oven preheated to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Toss the fennel slices with a pinch of salt and pepper on a baking sheet. Drizzle with a bit of oil or cooking spray. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until caramelized and tender.
  3. In a large bowl, mash the chickpeas using a fork or a potato masher. Add the roasted fennel to the bowl with the mashed chickpeas. Stir until well combined.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring between each interval. Once smooth, pour the chocolate over the chickpea-fennel mixture. Stir until everything is coated in the rich, dark chocolate.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Divide the unlikely fusion among four plates. Serve immediately, and watch as your guests' faces light up with surprise and delight.
