Preparation of panelle with an avocado and tomato salad: versatile and healthy delicious
Making the avocado and tomato salad
Cut the avocados in half, remove the stones and chop the flesh into squares, inside the skin. Scoop out the squares with a spoon. Cut the tomatoes in half and remove the seeds. Chop the tomatoes into small cubes and combine with the onion and garlic. Place on a small platter and season to taste with vinegar, olive oil, half a tablespoon of seasoning mix, fleur de sel and pepper. Set aside to allow the flavours to develop before serving.
Making the panelle
Place the chickpea flour and a pinch of salt in a pot and gradually add 600 ml of water, stirring continuously. Cook over a medium heat, still stirring continuously, until the mixture leaves the sides of the pot. Still stirring, add half a tablespoon of seasoning mix, season to taste with salt and pepper, and remove the pot from the heat. Grease your work surface with oil and scoop the chickpea mixture onto it with a spatula. Use the spatula to spread out the mixture into a layer 2-3 cm thick, then leave to cool.
Frying the panelle
Heat the coconut oil in a wok to 180°C. Cut the chickpea mixture into triangles and fry in the hot coconut oil until golden brown. Remove from the wok and drain on kitchen paper. Keep the cooked triangles warm until it's time to serve, then serve with 2 tablespoons of the avocado and tomato salad per person. Bon appetit!
