Legumes such as chickpeas are an essential part of vegetarian dishes. They are versatile, high in fibre and protein and have no cholesterol and little fat. They also provide a nutty taste to these patties.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (19 oz/540 mL each) chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 large whole wheat pita breads
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumber
Coriander Yogurt:
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped coriander
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint

Method

Coriander Yogurt: In small bowl, mix yogurt with coriander; set aside.

In food processor, pulse together chickpeas, eggs, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper until smooth; transfer to bowl. Add bread crumbs, green onions, garlic and 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the Coriander Yogurt; stir to combine. Using wet hands, shape into six 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick patties. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate patties and yogurt for up to 24 hours.)

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry patties, turning once, until golden and crisp, about 10 minutes.

Cut each pita in half; stuff each pocket with patty. Spread Coriander Yogurt on patties; top with carrots and cucumber.
