Sunset, MARCH 2009. It looks like a lot of ingredients, but it's for the whole sandwich and salad, not just the patties.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make chickpea patties: In a 3- to 4-qt. pan, mix chickpea flour and dry seasonings.
  2. Gradually whisk in 2 1/2 cups water until smooth. Cook over medium heat, whisking often, until mixture begins to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes. Switch to a spoon and stir until mixture pulls away from pan bottom and mounds in center of pan, 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Stir in parsley. Using an oiled spoon or fingers, evenly spread mixture in an oiled 9- by 13-in. pan. Let cool.
  4. Make mayo: Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Chill, covered.
  5. Make slaw: Whisk together vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl, then gently stir in carrots and radishes.
  6. Now for the sandwiches! Preheat broiler and set a rack 4 inches from heat.
  7. Split rolls, leaving one side attached, and open up. Place rolls cut side up in a large rimmed baking pan; lightly brush tops with 1 tablespoons olive oil. Broil until golden, about 1 minute. Tip onto counter and drape with foil.
  8. Oil the baking pan. Brush chickpea mixture with 1 tablespoons olive oil; sprinkle with salt.
  9. Cut into 12 rectangles and set slightly apart in oiled pan. Broil until golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn patties over and broil until golden on second side, about 2 minutes.
  10. To assemble, generously spread mayo on cut sides of rolls. Place some salad greens on one side of each roll and top with some carrot slaw, then 2 chickpea patties.
