  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil - for the baking sheet
  • 15 ounce garbanzo beans, canned and drained
  • ½ cup onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 16 small rolls or pita pockets


  • Preheat the oven to 400°
  • Lightly grease a cookie sheet for browning the patties.
  • Place the beans into a large bowl and mash with a potato masher.
  • I put my onions into a food processor and pulse two to four times because I like smaller pieces of onion in my patties.
  • To the large bowl add onion, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.
  • Mix well.
  • Form into patties and space out on a cookie sheet. I like to form them fat, and then as flat as I can on each side so that the patty surface touches the pan as much as possible - for the browning.
  • Bake about 10 to 15 minutes on each side. 20 to 30 minutes total. Depending on how brown you like your patties.
  • Serve on small rolls or in mini pita pockets with your favorite condiments. I used my homemade almond mayonnaise recipe. Lettuce is perfect on these sandwiches too. Dill pickles on the side are classic.
