Chickpea Patties (with Watercress Citrus Salad)

I made these without any dip/sauce to go with them and they just needed something a little extra, so I’d suggest a salsa or avocado dip to go with it, but the pattie recipe is pretty quick and easy.

Chickpea Patties

~ 400g tin of chickpeas, drained
~ 2 tbsp sesame seeds
~ 1 tbsp paprika
~ 1 tsp ground ginger
~ 1 tbsp olive oil
~ juice of 1/2 a lemon
~ 1 egg
~ salt and pepper

Combine the chickpeas, sesame seeds, paprika, ginger, oil and lemon in a food processor and blend until consistency is smooth, with a few chunks.  Add the egg and mix through.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Place mixture in the fridge for about 15-20 mins so it makes it easier to create the patties.

Take handfuls of the mixture and shape into patties.  Cover each side with almond meal and bake at 170 for 15-20 mins.  Don’t cook for too long otherwise they will be too dry.  Serve with salsa or avocado dip.

I served the patties with Quinoa Broccoli Salad and Watercress Citrus Salad (recipe from Scandi Foodie)
