Man does not live by bread alone, as you might say when confronted with irresistible delicacies, the kind that you nibble on when starting off a lovely evening with an aperitif in the company of a few friends, enjoying a nice cold beer or a lovely sparkling wine. Today we are offering you one of those irresistible recipes that help to stimulate the appetite as only tapas can: these Spanish specialties, in fact, are increasingly enjoyed in Italy as well as Spain, and are the perfect entrée for a dinner party which displays some attention to detail. The only thing not to neglect is to season your tapas with imagination, adding your personal touch, letting yourself be inspired by your culinary instincts - and, if you wish, following the example of our chef who created these delicious and original tapas.
Slice a baguette and brown it in a frying pan. Blanch half a kilo of broad beans in boiling water. When cooled, peel each bean one by one. Finely chop a quarter of onion, sauté in a pan, add then add the beans. Blitz the beans with an immersion blender, add the juice of half a lemon, a pinch of cumin powder, salt and pepper, and a dash of water. Transfer the mixture back into the frying pan for five minutes. Spread the tapas with the purée.
If it's too thick, dilute the purée with a little water and warm it for five minutes in a pan, where you should also add salt to taste
