Chickpea Patties / Burgers

Dairy, soya, wheat, gluten, corn and egg free.

I halved this recipe using one can of chickpeas and made 6 small patties for my 5 year olds. They are really tasty and robust (don't fall apart) and you can substitute the onion for sun dried tomatoes if preferred.

Full Recipe makes 12 small patties (8cm across, 2cm deep)

2 x 400g cans (weight is undrained weight) chickpeas, drained
4 garlic cloves, crushed, or garlic paste
1tsp ground cumin
1 small red onion, chopped
20g fresh coriander
2 tbsp plain flour - if using gluten free Dove's Farm works best and add 1 tsp Xanthan gum

extra flour to dust, olive oil for frying

Method

Pat the chickpeas dry and put them in a food processor with the garlic, cumin, onion and coriander.
Blend until smooth, then stir in the flour

With floured hands, shape the mixture into 12 small round patties and chill in the fridge for 20 mins.

Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry 2 mins each side or until golden and heated through.

Can be frozen.
