Number of Servings: 6


    15 1/2 oz can chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) rinsed and drained--skins on
    1/4 cup onion, chopped
    1/4 cup parsley or cilantro, fresh chopped
    1 medium garlic clove, minced
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1/4 tsp ground coriander
    1/4 tsp table salt
    1/4 tsp baking soda
    1 Tbsp all-purpose flour


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine chickpeas, onion, parsley, garlic, cumin, coriander, salt and baking soda in a food processor or blender. Process until mixture is coarsely pureed and transfer to large bowl. Stir in flour; shape mixture into 6 equal size balls and let stand for 15 minutes.

Spray a large ovenproof skillet with cooking spray and place oven medium-high heat. Add balls and cook until golden brown on at least two sides, a somewhere between 10-30 seconds a side (depending on cooking heat). Transfer pan to oven and bake 10 minutes.

I suggest assembling your sandwich with a Pita and some cucumber, lettuce, tomato and tzadzeki sauce--but that's up to you--enjoy!
