Chickpea patties

January 4, 2017

Author Notes: My husband suffers from food intolerances, and this recipe was created as part of my ongoing journey and blog ( to create meals that will keep him well nourished.

It came to me as I was eating a store bought vegan breakfast patty. I thought to myself...I can create something just as good.

We love this little patty. It's versatile, and can easily go from breakfast patty to dinner protein by modifying the spices.
