These are so yummy! I serve these with chopped cucumbers, Tahini Goddess Dressing, sliced tomatoes and lettuce on a toasted (toast the face of the bun in the skillet) burger bun.

  2. Add the garlic, cumin, and carrot and sauté for two more minutes.
  3. Transfer to large bowl or food processor and add the chickpeas.
  4. Mash or process until mushy.
  5. Stir in tahini and parsley and lemon juice.
  6. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in the small bowl, then stir into chickpeas.

  8. Fry in 1 T oil over medium-low heat for 1 minute, until just beginning to brown or spray with cooking spray and cook that way for less calories.

Good recipe. The one year old ate these with gusto as I did. Nice and easy for a lazy Friday night dinner.
