These are quick and very easy to make, they go well as sidekicks to anything you want to pair them with from potatoes to rice, but they are also great, chopped into sandwiches and burritos, and also make a great finger food with a delicious sauce to dip them in!
1 can of garbanzos or chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup raw almonds
1 tsp. onion powder (if you would like extra flavor, add 1/2 red onion, peeled and coarsely chopped)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. coriander powder
1/2 tsp. olive oil plus more to cook with
Salt to taste
1 Tbps. sweet paprika powder
Put the garbanzos, the oats and the almonds with the onion, if you choose to add it, in a food processor or blender with barely enough water to process till you have a smooth paste. Scrape into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients and little bits of water until you have a dough that is neither too stiff nor too runny.
Adjust salt and seasonings as necessary, to your taste. Form the little croquettes and cook in a skillet barely painted with olive oil till golden brown on all sides.
Yield depends on the size you choose to make these in, but recipe is easily increased as needed.
