Vegan Cauliflower Chickpea Patties

Perfect for lunch. Pictured with sliced cherry tomatoes, spring greens, hummus, and avocado slices. Serve in a piece of warm pita bread.


For a alternative to a chicken sadwich, use in a vegan bun, chopped lettuce, and vegan mayo.


1 head cauliflower, florets broken apart
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 bell pepper, diced small
1 onion, diced small
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup panko
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375.

Boil or steam cauliflower until soft.

Sauté onion and bell pepper over low heat until soft. Add garlic and sauté for another minute or so.

In a large bowl, mash chickpeas up well with a fork or the bottom of a cup. Add cauliflower and smash up as well. Add all other ingredients and stir until combined.

The mix should be wet but come together in a ball without falling apart. Carefully make a ball in your hands with the mix. I did mine a little bigger than a golf ball.

Press ball between hands to make a patty. Place patty on oiled pan or baking dish. Continue with the rest of the mix.

Bake for 25 Minutes, flip the patties. and bake for another 20 minutes or until browned.
