Cauliflower / Chickpea Patties

(recipe adopted from One Green Planet)

1 head cauliflower, diced
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 bell pepper, diced small
1 onion, diced small
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375°F.
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, smash 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.
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.



Return to picnic.
