Chickpea Patty

Chickpea Patties, my newfound love.

I am still experimenting with vegan patties—I like having an alternative to my daily fare of legumes. These are nice for a small meal or a bigger meal, a snack or a party—and any garnish helps make it a little festive, too.


  • 1 cup cooked / canned chickpeas
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 cup chopped kale (raw or marinated)
  • 1 scallion
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper corn (whole) any color will do (mix orange peel…1/2 tsp)
  • 1/4 tsp of sea salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • If you don’t need the patty to be vegan add 1 whole free-range GMO-free egg.


Mix all the ingredients in a blender at low speed so you get a more chopped mix rather than a coarse paste—you don’t want to make it into hummus.

Form into patties. I am told it is best to keep them overnight in the fridge before cooking. I did not do that so it was a bit more challenging to keep them formed when turning them over, but they still tasted great.

Cook the patties for about 8-10 min. on each side in a pan on the stovetop with a little cooking oil.

You will get 3-4 patties depending how big you make them.

Serve with greens and add some microgreens as garnish.
