Chickpea Patties Recipe
Makes 6 large patties
In a food processor, blend together the chickpeas, garlic, corn, peas, herbs and spinach (if using) for a few minutes, until smooth.
Add the carrots, onion, spices, bread crumbs and flour to the food processor and blend together. Turn the mixture out into a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Form the mixture into patties (I like to make 3 1/2-inch patties) and fry until golden, 3 to 5 minutes per side. You can cook a few at a time, but keep in mind they're much easier to flip when you have more space! Do not fuss with the burgers while they're cooking; flip them just once, very carefully.
TIP: These are great for freezing. Once the patties have fully cooled, individually wrap each and place in a freezer-safe container and freeze for later. When you're ready to enjoy them again, reheat on the stove in an oiled pan, or in the oven, on low heat, until heated through.
