For the Chickpea Patties
For the Tomato Sauce
  1. First, drain and rinse the Chickpeas from the can. Then, add the Chickpeas and Tomatoes into the bowl of the food processor. Pulse it a few times to just break everything up and incorporate it.
  2. Next, add in the Olive Oil, minced Garlic, Fresh Parsley, Spring Water, Baking Soda, Sea Salt and Black Pepper, then pulse some more to break everything done and combine it.
  3. If needed you can strain the mixture bc you don’t want it wet, it needs to be more damp. Transfer the mixture into a mixing bowl and add in the Chickpea Flour. Food everything together or just mix using your hands.
  4. Add some extra Chickpea flour to a plate and set aside. Start forming your patties. The size doesn’t matter, depends on your preference. Then roll all edges and sides into the extra flour and form the patties again. It firms them up a little more.
  5. In a hot skillet add in some oil and about half of the patties. Pan fry them on both sides about 3-4 minutes each. Once they start browning on the bottom and edges flip them. I like to fry the edges too so I stand them on their sides and roll them until all edges are fried and crisp.
  6. Once fully fried, remove the patties from the skillet and lay on a paper towel lined plate to absorb any excess oil.
To Prepare the Tomato Sauce
  1. Then, once your patties are done, prepare the Tomato Sauce {you could use jar sauce here but it’s so simple, try this}. Add in the Spring Water, Tomato Paste, Olive Oil and Herbs listed above. Stir everting together. Bring the sauce to a low boil and let it cook about 6 minutes to thicken.
  2. Finally, add the Fried Chickpea Patties back into the skillet with the Tomato Sauce. Spoon some sauce over the patties.
  3. Serve as a main dish alone or you could serve with a Greek Salad on the side. Enjoy!
