Flourless Chocolate Chickpea Cake
The Alberta Pulse Growers (APG) is a sponsor of Toque Demagny, one of Edmonton’s premiere culinary events featuring the talents of NAIT’s Culinary Arts students and Alberta food products. The event takes place each November in Ernest’s Dining Room at NAIT.
The student teams use pulses in their creations and scholarships are awarded to the student chefs. One of the delicious pulse recipes created by a student team in 2014 was the Flourless Chocolate Chickpea Cake. It was created by NAIT Culinary Arts student Kari Marchand.
“On competition day we made half of this recipe as we decided to put smaller portions on the dessert,” Marchand recalled. “I added chickpeas to a favourite cake that I had the opportunity to make in one of my classes. We thought it turned out really nice.” The Toque Demagny guests agreed, and we hope that you do too.
