Chickpea and Coriander Fritters

ChickpeaFritters

This recipe is healthy, delicious and very simple to make, especially when the pantry is running bare.

Chick Peas or Garbanzo beans (like most legumes) have long been valued for their fibre content and are great for weight loss. They can boost your energy because of their high iron content, are a good source of protein for vegetarians and can lower LDL (bad) cholesterol.

Coriander or Cilantro is fabulous for healing skin disorders and can also lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

Throw these tasty morsels together and serve with rocket, coriander and lemon wedges…oh, and Sweet Chilli Sauce is a must!

Ingredients:

      • 1 tin of mashed chickpeas (I use a potato masher so the chickpeas remain semi-whole and the fritters rustic)
      • 1/2 cup roughly chopped coriander
      • 1 roughly chopped onion
      • 1/2 cup flour
      • Cumin
      • Rock salt
      • 1 large egg
      • Coconut oil for frying

Lightly mix all the ingredients together, press a heaped tablespoon of mixture in pan to form patties, fry until golden brown on both sides, 4 to 5 minutes.

Enjoy!
