Cajun Chickpea Cakes


1 tbsp oil

1/4 cup diced onion

1/4 cup diced green pepper

1 celery stalk, diced

1 28 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp paprika

pinch of cayenne pepper

1 tsp hot sauce

2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

2 tbsp flour

1 tbsp cornstarch

salt and pepper to taste

oil for frying



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


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.


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.
