So you will have to take my word and my empty plate, about how delicious they are!
Empty Plate Zucchini Patties
1 can chickpeas 15.5 ounces
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs or finely crushed tortilla chips as a gluten free option
1/4 cup nutritional yeast or Parmesan cheese(optional)
1 zucchini unpeeled, seeded, and shredded
1 red pepper grated
1 garlic clove grated
1 onion grated
1 egg or 1 tbsp ground flaxseed with 2 tbsp water
1 tsp salt
Mash chickpeas until smooth. I used a potato masher. Stir in the rest of the ingredients, and form into thin patties. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a pan and fry until brown on both sides. I ate mine like a sandwich, but the others in my house hold ate them straight from the plate!
If you are unfamiliar with nutritional yeast it is a product widely used in vegan diets. It is a great source of protein, B vitamins, and fiber. It adds a sort of cheesy taste to foods while allowing them to remain dairy free! It is worth trying if you haven't had it before, even if you don't follow a vegan diet.
Have a great Sunday-Joy
