Chickpea, Egg and Herb Salad with Parmesan Crisps

Total time: 20 minutes
     A simple salad, but full of flavor from the herbs and tapenade.  The Parmesan Crisps, made from puff pastry with a bit of oil and Parmesan, are so delicious no one will believe they're so simple to make.

Parmesan Crisps                                                                        Time:  15 minutes plus 5 earlier  
   Easy to make and a great way to use up the leftover bits of puff pastry.  You could also make them sweet: brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar; serve for dessert with coffee.  I have no idea how long they will keep... We ate them all!  I ignored the fact that my pastry was actually a semi-circle and sliced the crisps from the 'straight' edge.  I was able to use almost all of it....
