Vegetarian Chickpea Patties with Broccoli and Potatoes, scrumptiously golden, and so addictive. Great as an appetizer, and one of those healthy snack recipes kids love. Why not have one in between meals, or take some on a picnic. They are so easy to make, you'll never buy ready-made patties again.
Cut the leek and sauté it in one tablespoon of oil until tender, then add the broccoli florets chopped finelly and stir for a minute. Pour half a cup of water and let it simmer until evaporated and the leeks and broccoli are soft.
Mix the leeks and broccoli with the potatoes and chickpeas, season well with salt and pepper, add the breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley and egg and mix well to combine.
Moist your hands and shape patties, then coat them in flour and arrange on a plate. Cover with clingfilm and chill in the fridge for one hour to firm up.
Heat up the oil in a frying pan, and fry the patties on both sides untll golden. Serve warm or cold.
