Delicious spiced chickpea and carrot fritters — perfect for a healthy lunch or as a snack!
Happy Labor Day friends! Do you have some fun plans on the agenda — maybe a family picnic, cookout, or a day at the beach? Apparently we’re supposed to get a lot of rain today, but hopefully yours will be sunnier than mine.
I have some tasty little chickpea patties to share today. The recipe idea came about when I had too many cans of chickpeas in the pantry that needed to be used up. I make chickpea and carrot salad every so often, so I thought I’d try to reinvent the dish this time.
Chickpeas are whizzed together in the food processor and then mixed with fresh crunchy carrots and spices to produce these protein-packed vegetarian fritters. Fritters might make you think of patties swimming in grease, but not these! They are light, deliciously healthy, and really satisfying!
The combination of chickpeas and carrots goes incredibly well with the warm spices like curry powder, coriander, and cayenne pepper. These fritters are great served as appetizers, but you can also serve them as the main component of your meal with a salad on the side. To make it even better, whip together a quick yogurt sauce for dipping. Yum!
