These came out a little dry because there are baked in the over so I recommend a sauce or gravy. These would actually be ideal as burger patties. We had them as balls with steamed veg and a little bit of tartar.
2 cans chickpeas (drained…SAVE THAT JUICE)
2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp onion powder
1/ tsp ground cloves
Next time I will add:
1 shredded carrot
Cooked mushy peas
Pulse the chickpeas in a processor until chunky. NOT SMOOTH. You don’t want a paste you just want it broken up and flakey. You can also achieve this by mashing it with a fork.
Then add all the herbs and any extra veg and mix till all combined. If not wet enough to hold everything together add some of that chickpea juice. Only a little at a time though, a little goes a long way.
Roll into small balls and either cook as that or flatten into patties. Bake 15 min on 180c
Makes approx 16 small balls.
