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

Mediterranean Salad With Chickpea Patties


  1. 1 15.5-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
  2. 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  3. 1 clove garlic, chopped
  4. 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  5. Kosher salt and black pepper
  6. 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  7. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  8. 1/2 cup low-fat yogurt (preferably Greek)
  9. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  10. 8 cups mixed greens
  11. 1 cup grape tomatoes
  12. 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  13. Pita chips (optional)


  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.

Oh, never mind! Yogurt is not needed for the patties... should have read the recipe through, huh? :)

I'm highly allergic to yogurt... any ideas for alternatives? Can I use some egg replacer or some other kind of binder? These sound delicious.
