Chickpea Patties

This simple recipe for Chickpea Patties is something I came up with while trying to make falafel. So essentially this is my version of a falafel lol.

Ingredients: 1 can of chickpeas, chopped red onion, Italian breadcrumbs, 1 egg, feta cheese crumbles, garlic powder, salt, pepper, season salt

First, I put the onion and chickpeas in the food processor.

Beat the egg and mix it with the chickpea mixture in a bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, feta cheese, and seasonings.

Take portions of the mixture and roll into balls or patty shapes. Heat olive oil in a frying pan and fry the patties in the pan. Also, preheat the oven to 350.

When each side is golden brown, place the patties on a sheet of foil. When all of them are on the sheet, put it in the oven to finish baking the inside. I don’t remember how long I had them in the oven, but it wasn’t more than 20 min.

I had the patties with yellow rice and spinach. Also ranch dressing was the sauce of choice since I don’t have tzatziki sauce on hand 🙂

I wish I had some pita bread..but all in all it was really good and really easy to make! Maybe I’ll try to make real authentic falafel sometime.
