Chickpea Patties

Chickpea Patties

These patties are a great to make a batch ahead of time and just keep in the frig and heat as many as desired.  They don't need any dipping sauce in my opinion, but my son sometimes like to dip them in ranch or ketchup.

You will need:
  • 15 oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tbsp whole brain flakes, or cornmeal or whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp parsley
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic or 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 egg

Mash chickpeas with either a fork, large slatted spoon or a potato smasher.  Add in all seasonings and egg and mix until combined.  Scoop into patties about 1.5 - 2 inches wide and place in a plate lined with wax paper.  Put patties into the freezer for about 30 -45 minutes to set.
 Them either bake on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until brown on one side, flip and bake another 10 minutes.  Let cool and serve.  
Or you can heat about 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan, once oil is hot put patties in pan and cook for about 7- 9 minutes on each side or until both sides are brown.  Let cool and serve.  Store any extras in the frig for about a week.
