"Spicy Middle Eastern mashed chickpea patties that are not deep fried. You can stuff patties into whole grain pita bread with sliced tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and chopped veggies, topped off with Tzatziki or tahini yogurt sauce. I chose to have it over a salad with a blue cheese dressing."

Wow, these are so good and packed with flavor! I used a 14 ounce can of chickpeas so compensated by adding some extra of the other ingredients. I love how this can be prepped ahead - prepped it in the morning and let it sit in the fridge until it was time for making dinner. It was done in no time. Topped it with some yogurt sauce and the flavors all popped. Thanks, Patti, for sharing this winner.

These are so easy to put together and turn out tasty.I made a couple of slight changes by using frozen chick peas and gluten free biscuit mix instead of all purpose flour.
