Fast & Easy Dinner: Mediterranean Salad With Chickpea Patties

Fast & Easy Dinner: Mediterranean Salad With Chickpea Patties


Who knew chickpeas could be transformed into so many delicious dishes?! Yesterday Yum recommended using them as a spread-like salad in a sandwich, and today I'm suggesting you form the canned beans into individual cakes.

These flavorful patties are seasoned with garlic, cumin, and parsley. They're the perfect topping to a Mediterranean-style salad dressed with tangy Greek yogurt sauce. If this vegetarian meal sounds interesting to you, get the recipe and read more.

Mediterranean Salad With Chickpea Patties

Ingredients

1 15.5-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Kosher salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup low-fat yogurt (preferably Greek)
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
8 cups mixed greens
1 cup grape tomatoes
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
Pita chips (optional)

Directions

  1. In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas, parsley, garlic, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper just until coarsely chopped and the mixture comes together when gently squeezed. Form into eight 1/2-inch-thick patties and coat with the flour, tapping off excess.
  2. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties, turning carefully, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the yogurt, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  4. Divide the greens, tomatoes, onion, and chickpea patties among plates. Drizzle with the dressing and serve with the pita chips, if using.

Serves 4.
