Ingredients

  • 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

  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • Pita chips (optional)

Preparation

  1. 1. 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.
  2. 2. Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden.
