Author Notes: These dijon chickpea fritters are pretty straightfoward to make, not to mention healthy. You can serve these as an entree for two with a nice green salad on the side or as an appetizer for a bigger group. —Vicky | Things I Made Today
Serves: 2 as entree, 4 as appetizer
ounces can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
medium yellow onion, minced
garlic cloves, minced
tablespoons Dijon mustard
teaspoon Kosher salt
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
tablespoons all purpose flour
- In a large bowl, mash chickpeas with the back of a wooden spoon or a potato masher until they are completely broken down. Add onion, garlic, egg, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix until fully combined. Add flour, one tablespoon at a time, until there is no visible liquid but it is still relatively wet.
- Heat canola oil in a cast iron skillet. Using your hands, form 6-8 fritters and drop them into the hot oil. Cook on each side for 3-6 minutes, until nicely browned, then flip and repeat on remaining side.
- Meanwhile, stir together mayonnaise and Harissa.
- Serve fritters with Harissa aioli.
