And since these Cauliflower & Chickpea patties are great served alone, any leftovers make the perfect snack or easy quick lunch!
Especially since they taste just as yummy cold…right outta the fridge!
As I’m writing this post, I’m also enjoying a warm rainy Spring day. But I also have the pleasure of looking out my back door at a nice view while doing this…
So friends it Really doesn’t get much better than that. 🙂
And 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 it just so happens to be one of the most popular recipes here on AFCJ.
But add a few chickpeas with your cauliflower for a great tasting Patty that you can eat alone or top with some of your favorite ingredients.
Like tomatoes, & red onions just to name a few. Whatever your favorite veggie burgers toppings are.
Plus since these are great cold you’ll definitely want to make sure you have leftovers. Since these Cauliflower & Chickpea Patties are high in protein they make the perfect post workout snack.
And 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 she was probably right on that one. 😆
