Makes 4 servings (serving size: 2 patties plus 2 cups salad)
1 (15.5-ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1 egg, whisked
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup low-fat Greek-style yogurt
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
8 cups mixed salad greens
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
Pita chips (optional)
How to Make It
Pulse first 4 ingredients (through cumin) and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a food processor until coarsely chopped and mixture comes together. Transfer to a bowl, add egg and 2 tablespoons flour; form into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Place remaining flour in a small dish and roll patties in it with floured hands; tap off excess flour.
Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden.
Whisk together the yogurt, lemon juice, and remaining salt and pepper. Divide greens, tomatoes, onion, and patties evenly among 4 plates; drizzle each salad with 2 tablespoons dressing. Serve with pita chips, if desired.
The patties had good flavor and I'll definitely make this again. I did not make the salad dressing, and I should have, because they need some type of sauce. Next time I'll make the dressing, or serve it with tzatzaki
