I came up with these when I had some garbanzo beans on hand, and nothing to do with them. I decided I wanted some kind of patty but couldnt find a recipe that I was 100% happy with, so this is what I came up with. I think they are pretty darn good :-) Prep time doesn't include time to cook rice. Cook time is just estimated. I can't remember how long I cooked them...just cook until golden brown on both sides :-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First take a large bowl and mash garbanzo beans and rice together thoroughly.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients except broth and combine VERY WELL.
  3. If the mixture is too dry to form patties, add a bit of broth to moisten it, but NOT TOO MUCH.
  4. Form small patties (size really doesnt matter too much).
  5. Heat a skillet over medium to medium-high heat with a small amount of oil (vegetable oil, or any other oil you choose) and add patties, cooking them until golden brown on each side.
  6. Do not allow them to get too dark, because they will get too crunchy on the outside if you cook them too long.
  7. We like to eat these with a bit of lime-chile chutney on the side, and sometimes we'll even eat them with a bit of ketchup!
  8. haha.
  9. ENJOY!

A very nice pattie! It is loaded with wonderful fiber too! I will add a slice of cheese next time I make these. They have a very nice flavor.

I changed my mind on this recipe, while they were hot I didn't like the texture of them, the rice seemed too chewy. I actually got 10 patties from this recipe so I must have made them smaller. After they had been chilled in the refigerator the texture seemed to change and the flavour seemed better too. I think they definately need a chutney or sauce to go with them. I would make them again but only to eat cold.
