Chickpea Patties with Tzatziki and Avocado

Chickpea patties with tzatziki and avocado


4 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Small Red Onion, minced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Cans Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tsp Cumin
3 C Fresh Chopped Parsley
1 Egg White
1/4 cup flour

I used Cosco's Tzatziki because it is one of my favorite dips. You can make your own or mix together greek yogurt, lemon juice and pepper for your own easy lemon yogurt sauce.


In a small skillet, heat 2 tsp oil and gently saute onion and garlic over low-medium heat.

 Empty chickpeas into a medium bowl with cumin and chopped parsley. Mash with a fork to a coarse texture.

 Stir in onions and garlic.

Add egg white and combine.

 Form 4 soft patties.

Sprinkle flour on a plate, dip both sides of each patty with flour. 

Heat remaining oil in a large skillet and saute chickpea patties for 3-4 minutes per side, until golden.
