What you will need: one can chick peas/onion/red pepper/carrot/oil/bread crumbs (panko) Seasonings: garlic/pepper/cumin/paprika/chili powder
Preheat oven to 375
rinse chickpeas and finely chop your veggies
saute veggies in a bit of oil – add all your spices and stir till soft and fragrant
add chickpeas to a bowl and add same spices/stir then add a bit of oil and mix
when veggies look and smell amazing it is time to add them to your chickpea bowl and stir
get your food processor ready (or whatever you would like to use) put concoction in and pulse till everything is pasty looking or in nicer terms, completely processed/blended together
I didn’t have any bread crumbs on hand so I took a piece of rye bread toasted it and grind it up in the food processor then added it to the already prepared mix so you can bond your patties together
you can form your patties however big or small you would like
spray your cookie sheet with some cooking spray and add however many you would like and then drizzle a bit of oil on top of each patty – set in the oven and bake the first side for 20 minutes then turn and bake the other half for another 20 minutes
the other patties I cooked in a pan with some oil – it takes about 15 minutes maybe less – depends on how you want them done.
And these are the finished chickpea patties
the ones on the right are the pan cooked ones and the left are the oven baked patties
There was one added to this photo, but my husband decided it was better to be eaten!
They are so beyond delicious! you can prepare them however you like. They are good on their own or in a pita, sandwich, wrap….anything goes….
and this is another added bonus – after you process all the ingredients together it is even delicious as a dip (minus the breadcrumbs of course!)
(a reminder: oven at 375 bake both sides of the patties for 20 min. each – in a pan it’ll take about 10-15 minutes)
