Chickpea and Feta Patties

Labels: { , , } | © 2014 | | © 2014 |

High in fiber, low in fat and calories, and yet loaded with protein, chickpeas are by far one of the best sources of protein for vegetarians. But their wonderfully nutty flavours means that even the non-vegetarians will love them.
Served with some seasonal salad, tucked into a pocket bread, sandwiched between sliced bread or simply on their own, these patties make a delicious vegetarian meal. They are easily veganized by substituting the egg for egg replacement, and utilizing tofu instead of feta.

  • 400 g Can chickpeas, rinsed, drained
  • 20 g Onion fritters
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 Small carrot, peeled, coarsely grated
  • 80 g Feta, crumbled
  • 1 Egg
  • Salt and pepper
  • 70 g Spelt breadcrumbs
  • 30 ml Olive oil
  1. In a food processor add in chickpeas, onion fritters, crushed garlic, grated carrot, feta and egg, and process until combined.
  2. Transfer to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the breadcrumbs and mix until combined. Season well with salt and pepper. Press into 6 patties. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Heat the oil over a medium heat. Add the patties and cook for 4-5 minutes each side until nicely golden brown. | © 2014 | | © 2014 |

Your chickpea patties with the feta, is a must make...I have not made chickpea patties in at least almost 2 yrs, and I love, love the addition of the feta cheese. Another great inspiration for a new recipe. Thanks for sharing! xo

Yum! These look so good. I love chickpea patties. That crushed lime next to it is making my mouth water hehe.

Vicki Bensinger 11/3/14 03:10

Angie these photos are stunning. I love chick peas and can eat them on their own and be satisfies. I'm not sure I've seen onion fritters though, where would I find them? I love the sound of this recipe, I will definitely save this recipe to try.

Angie's Recipes 11/3/14 04:56

@Vicki Bensinger I found them in a local supermarket. They are basically just crisp fried onions. Use shallots (stir-fried with a little bit oil until aromatic) if you can't find them.

lena 11/3/14 17:28

hi angie, looking at that burger makes me hungry! nice to see your comment on my blog earlier after being away for awhile! thanks :)

Amelia 12/3/14 16:47

Hi Angie, excellent chickpea recipe. Very healthy version! Beautiful presentation, 2 thumbs up for you.

Have a wonderful day.

Anonymous 12/3/14 18:53

Healthy and delicious as always!!

Eva Taylor 12/3/14 20:39

You are so right Angie, I am no vegetarian but I do adore chick peas and that Feta sure doesn't hurt either. I love the tender look of these and I bet the feta doesn't let it dry out at all. I'll take mine on a salad.

Luisa 13/3/14 17:52

Angie, thanks for sharing this recipe. I love chickpeas!

Medeja- CranberryJam 14/3/14 02:43

Just one question. Onion it just fried onion ?

Anonymous 15/3/14 00:27

What a great twist on the standard falafel. This is one I must try.

Kari Lindsay 15/3/14 01:41

Oooh, I looove chick peas, these patties are right up my alley! Thanks Angie!

FLAVZCORNER 18/3/14 18:29
