Ingredients

Hummus

  • 1 Beetroot
  • 200 gr Chickpeas
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 50 ml Olive oil
  • 50 gr Tahin
  • 20 ml ice cold water

Saffron onion

  • ½ Onion
  • 1 pinch Saffron
  • 1 pinch Sugar

Peanut crunch

  • 100 g raw peanuts
  • 3-4 dried chillies (depending on spice level)
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 3 Lime leaves
  • 1 Lemon grass sticks
  • 1 tbsp Pflanzliches Öl

Topping

  • 3 brittle shoots
  • A handful Lamb's lettuce
  • Maldon sea salt

Instructions

Hummus

  • Boil the beet with the skin in boiling water. 
  • Once soft, set aside the now red water and allow to cool.  Peel the beet and cut into small pieces.
  • Now peel the lemon and sprinkle the garlic clove with a pinch of salt, then mash with a fork.
  • Verrühren, bis der Hummus eine cremige Konsistenz hat, dann abdecken und bei Raumtemperatur beiseite stellen.

Saffron onion

  • Mortar the saffron and sugar with a splash of water.  If you do not have a pestle and mortar, you can use a spoon and a ceramic cup.
  • In a small saucepan, cover the onion with water and add the saffron mixture.
  • Auf kleiner Flamme köcheln lassen, bis die Zwiebel durchsichtig wird.  Die Zwiebelblätter vorsichtig voneinander trennen.

Peanut crunch

  • Break open the lemongrass and tap it with a firm object to release its aromas.
  • Heat a pan with a little vegetable oil and slowly fry all the ingredients until caramelized.
  • First remove the lemongrass and pull off some threads.
  • Briefly mix with remaining ingredients to form a coarse paste.

Topping

  • Blanch the Brussels sprouts in boiling salted water (about 3 minutes) so they are still firm.
  • Cut the sprouts in half and fry them in a hot pan with butter or oil.
  • Put the sprouts in a bowl with the lamb's lettuce and mix with a little salt and oil.
  • Then fry the sourdough slice in butter.
  • To serve, place a generous portion of hummus on the bread and top with the sprouts, onion leaves and lamb's lettuce.
  • Now sprinkle a good portion of peanut crumble on top and enjoy.
