Chickpea burgers with dried tomatoes

Vegetarian recipe. #vegetableeasyrecipe

For this recipe, you can use leftover chickpea or boil on purpose.

Serves 4


Chickpea 1/2 cup (or 1 can of chickpeas)

Boiled and smashed potato 1 (or 2 small ones)

Dried tomatoes in oil 4 (4 half dried tomatoes)

Stale bread made with whole wheat*, 1/4 cup

Bread crumbs ½ cup

Extra virgin oil 2/3 teaspoons

Flour 2/3 teaspoons

Bicarbonate ½ teaspoon

Salt and Pepper

1 egg -optional

grated Parmigiano cheese – optional – 2 teaspoons

How to

Soak chickpeas, then wash and boil with 2/3 cups water. Add bicarbonate. Boil until cooked and add salt just a few minutes before they’re ready. Make sure to drain well after cooking. If you use canned chickpeas, skip this step.

Drop your stale whole wheat bread into your food processor, mix well, add chickpeas, smashed potato and dried tomatoes, mix again. Optional: add 1 egg and Parmigiano cheese.

Make a uniform and elastic dough, drop into a bowl, then tear off some “abricot” size dough and form into small balls or shape as you like (the smaller they are, the sooner you cook them) . Then, press the croquettes first into the flour, then into the breadcrumbs.

Warm a non-stick pan and grease with extra-virigin oil (you do not have to fry them!), cook on both sides, serve. They’re delicious.

*stale rye bread is perfect.

* you can prepare your “chickpea” dough in advance and store in your fridge.
