5 Stars is not enough, perfect recipe, and so nice, they are very crunchy and take only 5 minutes from beginning to end to make, as I put everything into the food processor, I do the zucchini and garlic a little before then add the rest, I make them each week and freeze them, my favourite herb to add is dill when I do not have coriander. Thanks for posting, I use these as a vegie burger.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, COMBINE chickpeas (I used canned), breadcrumbs, grated zucchini, finely diced or grated cloves, cumin, cayenne, egg and coriander.
  2. HELPFUL HINT: With the back of a fork, break the chickpeas and make sure all ingredients are well combined.
  3. With hands, form into patties (Makes about 8).
  4. In frypan, heat pan, then oil (I used extra-virgin olive oil), FRY until brown; remove and place on paper towel to drain.
  5. I enjoy these with store bought Greek yogurt.
  6. ENJOY!
  7. NOTE: The patties are supposed to be slightly dry; may need to adjust/increase breadcrumbs slightly by 1/4 cup.
