Check out these easy to make, delicious chickpea patties. For a vegan option replace the egg with 1 tablespoon chia seeds which have been soaked in 3 tablespoons water until they form a gel-like consistency similar to the texture of a raw egg.
1 tin chickpeas
½ onion diced
1 clove garlic crushed
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground fennel
1-2 teaspoons paprika
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon pepitas
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 tablespoons linseeds/flax seeds
¼ cup besan flour (can use any flour)
Salt and pepper to taste
Blitz all ingredients until combined. It’s nice to leave it a bit chunky. Form the mixture into patties. This recipe makes 4 large patties. Fry in a little oil over medium heat until golden brown on both sides. Serve the patties on burgers, wraps or with a salad. Enjoy!
