Chickpea Patties

July, 2019

Chickpeas have to be my favourite legume! They are so versatile and a great source of fibre and protein. I love making these as part of my Sunday meal prep and freezing them for when I need a quick meal later in the week. They can be eaten alone as a snack, served in a burger or added to a salad.

Chickpea Patties

Makes 8

Ingredients

  • 1 brown onion, quartered

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 1/2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

  • 2 tsp ground cumin

  • 1 tsp tumeric

  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander

  • 2 tbs olive oil for cooking

Method

  1. Place onion and garlic in a food processor and blend until finely chopped

  2. Add chickpeas, egg, bread crumbs and spices. Blend until most of the chickpeas have broken down (I like it when there are still a few whole ones as it gives it a nice texture)

  3. Pour into a bowl and stir through the coriander

  4. Using hands, roll into 8 balls

  5. Heat fry pan over medium-high heat with 1 tbs oil

  6. Place 4 balls into the pan and flatten with the back of a slotted turner 

  7. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until brown

  8. Remove from the pan and repeat steps 6-7 with remaining balls

Serve with hummus, in a burger or with a salad
