Buffalo Chickpea Patties

I've been enjoying a lot of vegetarian meals lately. One thing I like about beans, is that they are healthy and cheap!

I've made bean patties before but so far, these are my favorite. I got the recipe from Veggie by Season and I even attempted to copy her presentation! It looked so nice!

I liked how she pureed some of the oats, I think that led to them sticking together better. They made a very nice appetizer.

We ate these with a delicious Apple Onion Pizza!  It was a great meal.

Buffalo Chickpea Patties
Adapted from Veggie by Season

1 - 15 oz. can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 c. buffalo sauce, I used Franks
1 egg white
1 small onion
1 tsp. garlic powder
Salt and pepper

For serving:
Buffalo sauce
Ranch or blue cheese
Carrot Sticks

Add chickpeas to a bowl, use a potato masher or fork to mash, some chunks are okay. Add the buffalo sauce to the chickpeas.

Add half the oats to a food processor, pulse to create a crumb, add to the chickpeas. Then add the rest of the oats. Beat the egg white into the chickpeas. Grate onion into the chickpeas, finally add the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Combining ingredients well.

Heat a griddle over medium, spray with nonstick spray. Use a 1/4 measuring cup to portion out chickpea mixture onto griddle. Cook patties for about 5 - 7 minutes, until crispy and brown, flip gently and cook for another 5 - 7 minutes. Serve immediately to retain crispness.

I served these as an appetizer and got about 7 patties. You could make larger patties and serve as a burger as well.
