Cauliflower & Chickpea Patties are vegetarian and gluten free patties that are tasty served on a bun or alone as a snack.
You can enjoy eating them as a quick snack right out of the fridge since they taste great cold as well or serve them on a bun with all of your favorite toppings.
It’s a warm rainy Spring day as I’m sitting here putting together this post about Cauliflower & Chickpea Patties. But I have the pleasure of looking out my back door at a nice view while doing this, so it doesn’t get much better than that.
This Cauliflower & Chickpea Patties is a recipe I’ve been trying to master for a while. Cauliflower just happens to be one of my favorite veggies so I experiment with it a lot. Spicy Crock Pot Cauliflower Mac & Cheese is another easy and tasty recipe using cauliflower.
And throw a few chickpeas into the mix and you’ve got a great tasting Patty that you can eat alone or top with some of your favorite ingredients.I chose to pair mine with some fresh cucumber salad. They were really quite tasty with just a dollop of mayo since they had so much great flavor on their own.
I actually just snacked on the leftover patties in the fridge the rest of the week. They were really quite tasty cold and since chickpeas are high in protein they make for a good pre or post workout snack.
It’s always nice to have healthy options readily available in the fridge so you don’t allow yourself to get hungry and chose unhealthy options.I like to limit what I consider unhealthy choices in my fridge and cabinets. This way I’m less likely to eat and drink things I know I probably shouldn’t.
You know how your Mamma always told you to eat your veggies. Well I think you can eat your veggies in a tasty way and enjoy them.
So my goal is to create as many different tasty and simple recipes that incorporate all the great veggies in them. It just so happens with cauliflower being one of my favorites you may see a lot of recipes with that.
One of the other things I like about these Cauliflower & Chickpea Patties is there are very few ingredients in them and you can prepare them rather quickly. Big Bonus!!
