chickpea patties recipe

It’s not always easy to plan tasty meals that give you plenty of healthy whole foods without sacrificing taste. That’s what makes these chickpea patties so great! By using a mix of spices that reminds you of the zesty taste of a good falafel, these patties allow you to move chickpeas into the spotlight as the center of a meal that’s both tasty and good for you.

Remember, chickpeas have tons of dietary fiber in addition to protein, vitamins, and minerals – these patties are highly nutritious and even suitable for vegans. Why not whip up a batch for dinner this week?
