Kabuli chickpeas, prawns and ‘nduja
Prep 15 mins (plus overnight soaking)
Cook 50 mins
Serves 4-6 as a shared dish
There’s nothing a good spoonful of ‘nduja can’t make better. These kabuli chickpeas are cooked from dried as they produce a nicer result than the canned ones. This is a simple dinner dish with prawns added, that also works great with grilled cuttlefish or chicken.
150g dried kabuli chickpeas, soaked
60ml (¼ cup) olive oil
2 garlic cloves
1 handful rosemary
2 tbsp ‘nduja (see note)
16 peeled raw prawns
Lemon wedges, to serve
1. Place chickpeas in a large saucepan, cover with cold water, then bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Reduced heat to medium and simmer until chickpeas are tender (45 minutes). Set aside to rest in liquid.
2. Heat olive oil in a large deep-sided frying pan over medium-high heat until hot, then add garlic and rosemary and stir until fragrant (1 minute). Add ‘nduja and prawns and stir until prawns are half-cooked (2 minutes). Add drained chickpeas to pan with a ladle of chickpea water, toss to combine, season to taste and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing.
