Garbanzo Bean Patties

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Garbanzo beans are blended in batches until pureed and then blended again with eggs, bread crumbs and thyme. This fragrant concoction is formed into patties - twelve in all - and then fried. You can save time by using canned garbanzo beans.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • In a large pot cover the garbanzo beans with at least 12 cups water. Cook over medium heat for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until tender. Check occasionally, as you might need to add more water.
  • Working in small batches, in a blender, on either the chop or blend setting, process garbanzo beans. Blend until the mixture is a paste. Add onions, thyme, salt and pepper to the mixture; mix well. Add bread cubes and egg; mix well.
  • Form the garbanzo bean mixture into patties.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry patties until each side is golden brown.
