Method

Prepare the apples:
Slice the top off the apples and gently scoop out the core and enough of the flesh to leave ½” of apple around the circumference. A melon baller works very well for this. To prevent the apples from browning, run a lemon slice over the flesh. Set aside.

Make the chickpea salad:
In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas until they resemble coarse crumbs. Spoon the chickpeas into a medium sized bowl and add the rest of the ingredients, stirring until well combined. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste.

Assembly:
Spoon the chickpea salad into each apple and place the top on for presentation.
