Easy Chickpea Fritters

With just a few ingredients and a quick cooking time, these Chickpea Fritters are a protein–packed meal that’s ready in under 20 minutes.

– Chickpeas – All-purpose flour – Parmesan cheese – Cumin, garlic powder, and salt – Olive oil – Cucumber-yogurt sauce, tzatziki, or hummus for serving as you like.

Ingredients Needed:

Drain the chickpeas (I save the liquid for an egg replacer to use in baking). Rinse with cold water (this removes some of the sodium).

Step 1.

Add to a shallow dish with the flour, Parmesan, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and 2 tablespoons water.

Step 2.

Mash with a potato masher until very smooth and uniform, adding another 2-4 tablespoons of water as needed.

Step 3.

Form into round, flat patties using 1 tablespoon batter in each. Patties should be about ½ inch thick.

Step 4.

Add olive oil to a pan over medium heat and cook the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Place onto a paper towel to drain.

Step 5.
