|Crisp, flavorful patties fill bellies and plates with yummy goodness.|
Well, needless to say, I forgot the bread, but recalled wanting to make some great patties for this beautiful, rain threatening Meatless Monday.
Today's patty, or veggie burger that is, combines chickpeas and pumpkin with quinoa that makes it all compact and wonderful. Curry powder gives such a delicious flavor and paprika spices things up just a little bit. But it's the flour (you know the main ingredient in bread!) that makes it delicately crunchy perfection.
I should have actually attempted to bake fresh bread, but opted for a simple salad. I figured who needs croutons when you can make these irresistible patties?
Vegan Pumpkin Chickpea Patties Ingredients and Preparation
1 cup quinoa, cooked
1 15 oz can chickpeas, drained
1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
3 tablespoon nutritional yeast
2 tablespoon coconut oil
2 teaspoon curry powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
3 tablespoon flour
Combine all ingredients together. You can choose to puree this, but I preferred the large chickpeas presence.
Heat a skillet with oil.
Make four rounded patties and gently place one in the skillet.
|Fry each side for about 5-7 minutes or until a nice brown sear happens. Repeat with remaining three.|
|Enjoy inside a bun or with spinach & a side of fruit.|
