Chickpea and Greens Patties Serves:   4
(serving size: 2 patties)

  • Prep Time:   10 minutes
  • Cook Time:   10 minutes
  • Total Time:   20 minutes

Ingredients

4 cups stemmed and torn Swiss chard (about 1/2 bunch), or spinach or other greens (mizuna is delicious in these!)
1 can chickpeas, rinsed
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
kosher salt and black pepper
2 ounces crumbled feta cheese (about 1/2 cup) -- goat cheese is delicious, too (or you can make them without cheese)
fresh or dried dill or other herbs like parsley to taste
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
olive oil
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
hot sauce, for serving - I recommend Frank's hot sauce

Directions

In a food processor, combine the chickpeas, garlic, cumin, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and pulse until finely chopped. My food processor struggles with this a bit, so I add about 1 tbsp of olive oil to make it run smoother. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary and transfer contents to a large bowl. Then chop the Swiss chard in the food processor and add to the chickpea mixture, along with the feta, herbs and flour. Mix until combined. Form the mixture into eight 2½-inch patties.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in 2 batches, cook the patties until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side, adding the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the skillet for the second batch. They might not come out perfectly shaped, but they will be delicious! Serve with the yogurt and hot sauce.
