Goldilocks Chickpea and Onion Patties

Ingredients

  • 2 SPRING ONIONS, FINELY SLICED
  • 1 CARROT, PEELED, GRATED
  • 2-3 ORANGE SWEET POTATOES, MASHED
  • 400G TIN CHICKPEAS, RINSED, DRAINED
  • 1/4 CUP BESAN (CHICKPEA) FLOUR
  • 1 TSP CUMIN
  • 1 TSP SUMAC OR ZEST 1/2 LEMON
  • 1/4 CUP OLIVE OIL

METHOD

  • Preheat oven to 180°.
  • To mash the sweet potatoes, place each one whole into the oven for 50-60 minutes until squishy. (Any leftovers are great added to spag bol, or mixed into sweet muffins).
  • In a large bowl, mash the chickpeas and mix through the veggies and spices. Form golf ball size patties and dunk in the chickpea flour.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add the oil and once hot, add a few patties to the pan. Turn when golden (you’ll probably need to cook them for about 3 minutes either side.)
  • NOTE - Serve with salad, lemon and a dollop of Greek yoghurt.
  • TIP - Serve this on rice for a more substantial meal.
