My friend made this for us when Truman was born. It's a new family favorite!


1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
3 tablespoons tahini
1 egg
2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 clove minced garlic
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup flour (I use whole wheat, it works fine)
2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
olive oil

For Serving: Pita Bread, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion and Yogurt Sauce (recipe follows)

Pulse chickpeas in processor until mostly smooth but still chunky. Stir in remaining ingredients except olive oil. Form into patties, cook in oiled pan over med/high heat 3 minutes each side. Drain on towels if necessary. Serve in halved pitas with l,o,t, and sauce.

Yogurt Sauce: (I find we only need half of this recipe)

2 cups plain yogurt
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons lemon zest
1 tablespoons cumin
Salt and Pepper to taste

mix together :)

We find this recipe totally crave-able. Love it.
