Ingredients

  • 2 cups Chickpea
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Parsley
  • 1 Salt And Black Pepper to taste


Method

  1. Drain the chickpeas and take off as many of the skins as you can. This isn’t necessarily, but it will make them a bit smoother in texture.
  2. Pop the chickpeas in a food processor and blend until they are in small chunks, or smooth to your liking. They can be totally smooth, but it’s not a must.
  3. Pour this mixture in a bowl and add the eggs, mixing until well incorporated.
  4. Preheat oven to 220 degrees.
  5. Now add everything else, mixing well to distribute. If your mix is too stick to roll, add some more breadcrumbs. If it is too dry, add a little more oil. The mixture should be easy to roll without cracking or too much stickiness.
  6. Roll the chickpea mixture into balls and lay on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, turning halfway. The ‘meatballs’ are done when the outside is gold and crispy.

Notes

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • This Vegetarian Chickpea Meatballs can be made vegan by substituting the eggs. For vegan egg, make it with 1 tbs ground flax with water per egg.
