Chickpea Blinis

Chickpea Blinis

These delicious chickpea blini are a delicious way to start your holiday celebrations. They’re vegan and gluten-free because they’re topped with hummus, mushrooms, and porcini!

Chickpea flour, water, and olive oil make up the batter, which is a gorgeous golden color. If you don’t have porcini, leave them out.

You can create blini-sized socca or larger crepes, depending on your preference. Although, if you’re planning on serving Blinis at a cocktail party,  socca will work best because they fit in one hand while you sip a glass of champagne with the other! And, more crucially, they can be eaten in a single mouthful.

A sprinkle of truffle oil over the mushrooms would also be delicious. Micro-greens add a nice touch to the dish.
