Chickpea and Corn Patties

Here is another variation on the savory pancake or patty. I think it would be delicious with a citrus green salad in the summer, but in the winter I love serving it with a chunky, tomato based vegetable soup. If you really want to go all out, roast a chicken to go along with it. Yum.

  • 1 can corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • olive oil

Saute the onion in olive oil until translucent, then add the corn and cook for a few more minutes. Then add the onions and corn to the remaining ingredients and pulse a few times in a food processor until there is a chunky paste which all holds together. Form into four equal size patties, dredge in some additional corn flour, then fry in olive oil or bake on an oil coated cookie sheet until cooked through.

Fresh breadcrumbs are easier to make then you think. Let a few slices of bread dry out, over time or by toasting, then coarsely pulse in your food processor.

I enjoy savory pancakes much more than the ones intended to be covered in some type of sweet yuck! I had never heard of chickpea cakes and you’ve opened the door to all kinds of new meals we could enjoy. I can’t wait to try this recipe!! Thanks!

Look like this is a great dish. Reminding me of the texture from hummus, this dish appears to be light and tasty. write more

These sound yummy! I like that they’re all chopped up as my son picked out every kernel of corn in the last cornbread I tried with whole kernel corn in it. I’m interested to see how much these resemble falafel. Is there any chance you would consider rescuing me from my laziness and offer printable recipes?

@gabriel, only if there’s a wordpress plug-in that does it for me! That’s a good idea though, I’ll have to investigate further. I don’t have a printer, so I never even thought about that.
