The holidays are upon us, and entertaining season is on in full force. We’re here to arm you with a killer recipe to replace that boring bowl of canned nuts that you always used to put out when unexpected guests stopped by. These truffled chickpeas can be batch roasted, stored in an airtight container and poured into a bowl at a moment’s notice when those unexpected neighbors pop over to say hello.
The truffle in these chickpeas is a bold and somewhat overpowering flavor profile, so pairing them with a full-bodied wine that can stand up against it, like Prophecy Pinot Noir, is important.
A handful of truffled chickpeas, a glass of luscious Pinot Noir, good friends around your table — that’s holiday perfection.
