Baked Curry Chickpea Fritters (Patties)
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 2 garlic Cloves, minced
  • 3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • 1 tbs flour (gluten-free, whole wheat, chickpea flour, oat flour...)
  • 1 tsp nutritional yeast
  • chili paste (Optional, I just like the extra spice)
  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. Add the chickpeas into a food processor / blender along with the minced garlic, cumin, curry, cayenne, nutritional yeast and 1 tbs of oil and blend until you form a chickpea paste.
  3. Lay out a cutting board and/or some parchment paper and sprinkle with some flour. Form patties with the chickpea mixture and pat both sides of patty in the flour.
  4. (I decided to brown the patties on a skillet before baking.) Add 2 tbs oil to a heated skillet and saute the patties on each side for about 4 minutes.
  5. Place sauteed patties on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper and bake for 20 minutes.
I served this on a bed of baby spinach with some chopped tomato as well as some leftover tomato sauce with mushrooms that were in the fridge. The next day, I had a couple of patties left over and I broke them up and had them on top of a big salad.
