Scrumptious Chickpea Patties

While thinking I was opening a can of pinto beans, I accidentally opened a can of garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas). So here I was with an extra can of beans added to the menu for the week. I was planning on making ground chicken patties, but decided to use of my extra can of goodness to make chickpea patties instead! They are very easy to make, with great fiber and protein content.


1 can of garbanzo beans
1 egg 
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 teaspoon dried parsley
 1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
Oil for pan-frying


Combine all ingredients into a bowl except egg. Mash with a fork or potato masher. Now add in egg, and mix with a spoon. Shape into patties. Heat pan to medium, add oil. Place patties in pan without touching, pan-frying lightly. Turn often to prevent burning. Can omit egg if desired
