Dijon Chickpea Fritters with Harissa Aioli

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

  1. 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.
