A recipe for healthy chickpea and spinach patties

Monday, November 6, 2017

A recipe and instructions for how to make these delicious and healthy chickpea patties. Full of goodness but very tasty. A new favourite in the Eating ideas household!

Ever feel like you eat too much meat?  I reckon we all do and we need to eat more vegetarian fayre.  I tried to think about how to make a well flavoured burger out of some of my favourite ingredients and this is what I came up with,

Chickpeas are one of my all time favourite ingredients and thankfully they are very healthy.  I am making a conscious effort to eat more spinach for its nutritious qualities but I have to sneak it into recipes as on its own it can be quite dull.  These 2 ingredients were my starting point and the rest was improvised.

You can make your own version using whatever ingredients you like but if you want to give mine a go- the details are below


  • 1 can of chickpeas (drained)
  • 1 red onion (finely diced)
  • 1 packet spinach (wilted)
  • 1 tbsp tahini paste
  • juice of half a lemon
  • pinch of chilli flakes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt and pepper


  • Array
