After three days of eating work provided meals and indulging at the Scooper Bowl I was craving something clean and fresh.  I knew I wanted some vegetables and beans.  After a quick stop at Whole Foods I created a simple, clean and fresh meal.  It was so good that I ate it both for lunch and dinner.  A whole can of chickpeas in one day?  No big deal.

Chickpea Patties

  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbls flax-seed


In your Cuisinart combine the above ingredients and chop until the mixture is smoother than it is chunky.  Using your hands, form 6 patties.  In your favorite non-stick frying pan heat up some extra virgin olive oil and lightly pan sear the patties, about 2 mins each side. 

While patties are cooking slice a tomato and avocado.  Remove patties from the frying pan and place on your plate.  Top with sliced tomato and avocado.  I suggest adding a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil as well as a sprinkle of sea salt and pepper.

These patties make the perfect lunch.  Individually they would make great appetizers!
