Legumes Patties

It is sometime hard to make the others feel like they eat a different meal every day, but in fact they are having the same thing.:-) So I have to work on the flavour of the legumes, one of my daughter doesn’t really like the texture so it really  has to taste good so she eats it.

A great way to add flavour is to work with fresh herbs and I usually use a lot of it, not just a few leaves. I know the green is not the most attractive, but it is very tasty.

I used basil and coriander, but whatever you like can be used. You should not hesitate by mixing herbs together, it makes a difference.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

  • Organic sunflower oil
  • 1 cup (250 ml) organic chickpeas
  • 1 cup (250ml) organic white beans
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup (62.5 ml) of fresh coriander
  • 3  organic green onions
  • 2 tbsp. (30ml) of nutritional yeast
  • Salt and pepper
  1. IMG_7975Preheat you oven to 350º.
  2. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients and pulse until you get a smooth texture. Make small patties, it will be easier to manipulate.
  3. In a pan with oil over medium heat, cook the patties approx. 2 minutes each side. Put them on a cookie sheet and finish the cooking in the oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Serve them with any side dish and there goes you alternative to meat.
