Ingredients for the sauce
Dried chickpeas should be soaked overnight then cooked. Or use pre-cooked chick peas from a jar. In both cases, wash and strain, then blend them in the food processor with garlic and the flour and spices.
Once the mixture is the right texture that you can make little balls, squish them into a fillet shape and press them onto a plate filled with breadcrumbs or chick pea flour. Now transfer them onto a baking sheet and bake until it reaches the desired texture. Alternatively you can lightly fry them with a frying pan lightly covered in avocado or grapeseed oil.
As for the topping, boil some roma tomatoes in mineral water. After a few minutes remove their skin and chop them into tiny pieces with fresh basil and sage.
Don’t forget to make enough for the entire family, and all your friends, including 4-legged friends.
