Recipe Ingredients for Crispy Cajun Chickpea Cakes -V A-

1 tbsp oil
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced green pepper
1 celery stalk, diced
28 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp paprika
1 pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tsp hot sauce
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon oil for frying

Recipe Directions for Crispy Cajun Chickpea Cakes -V A-

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Saute onion, green pepper, and celery for 5-7 mins, until softened. Remove from heat.

  2. Place chickpeas in a food processor along with the onion mixture. Pulse until chickpeas are no longer whole, but dont process them too much. Place chickpeas in a bowl and add spices, hot sauce, and parsley. Mix well. Add flour and cornstarch and mix well. Place in the fridge for 30 mins.

  3. Heat oil in a frying pan over med/med-hi heat (around 350 degrees). Shape chickpea mixture into 12 patties and fry in batches, about 2-3 mins per side, or until crispy and browned. Flip a few times if they are browning too quickly. If you have trouble forming the patties, add some more cornstarch to hold it all together.
