Method

  1. 4 big ones Heat a 20cm good-quality non-stick frying pan. Scatter about 20g of the grated cheese over the base of the hot pan. Watch it melt (don’t overcook or it will taste bitter) then sprinkle in a teaspoon of chopped chives and some black pepper. When the cheese is bubbly and golden, take the pan off the heat and cool for up to a minute, then the wafer can easily be lifted out with a palette knife. Repeat 3 times.
  2. 8 little ones Heat the oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick silicone sheet or baking parchment. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan in 8 neat rounds using the inside of a 5cm cutter as a guide. Sprinkle some chives and black pepper onto each round. Bake for 5 minutes until the cheese bubbles and turns golden. Lift each round onto a rolling pin, cool until crisp, then lift off.
  3. The wafers will keep in an airtight tin for up to 3 days.

Good with risotto but I found they needed 8-10 minutes to cook properly. The chives didn't make much difference to the flavour sadly.

Actually all you need to do is use vegetarian parmesan - therefore, it is veggie friendly.

This recipe is described as vegetarian, which it certainly isn't - Parmesan contains rennet and is not veggie friendly!
