Panelle (Italian Chickpea Fritters) #SundaySupper



I am a busy busy lady at the moment. Tomorrow morning I’m up at 5.30am to do a car boot. At the same time last night I went out and stayed up until 4 in the morning.  I’m tired.

Not a good combination. I’m busy because I’m about to move house. I’m about to move out of my 21 person house in the Midlands and back down to Bath for University. When I get back from trying to sell all my spare stuff tomorrow, I have to pack up all my things to move them to Bath on Monday. Busy busy.




This weeks #SundaySupper is global street food. I chose mine a while ago and then forgot all about it! I suddenly remembered today and in a mad rush made some. 

Turns out that it’s okay to do that, because they are so quick and easy to make. 




Honestly these couldn’t have been quicker! So few ingredients and a few minutes to cook.

I chose Italian street food for two reasons.

The first is I’m going on holiday to Italy in a week with my boyfriend and his family. Secondly my boyfriend used to has lived in Italy twice and would be able to tell me if I had made them right! He also translated the recipe from Italian for me so hopefully they are pretty authentic. Hopefully.





They were really tasty, however they definitely needed some kind of sauce to go with them. Nathan said that in Sicily they serve them with ketchup, but i went for a spicy sauce. I also served some in a sandwich.

I would definitely recommend giving these a try.
