Green Chickpea Patties Tahini Chiftelute de naut verdeturi

These green chickpea patties are not only delicious but healthy too! Packed with proteins and vegan, I’m sure these chickpea patties will soon become your favorite! 

I think I should focus on an even more specific niche with my blog – the crazy veggie patties lovers niche! Hehe! 😀 I am CRAZY about veggie patties! This green chickpea patties recipe was inspired by my healthy vegan falafels which were a huge success! Over 16k pins and 1k likes! Thank you guys so much! It’s good to know there are so many people out there who are as passionate about healthy eating as I am.

These green chickpea patties are as good as the healthy vegan falafels I told you about. Or…are these even better?! Maybe! I love olives and they’re a perfect ingredient in vegan patties. Also, leafy greens are a must! I added some wild garlic leaves too!

Tahini is also my newest obsession. I discovered a great brand of tahini and I’ve been using it a lot in my recipes. I also made this Spring Spinach Salad with Tahini Dressing. Have you tried it already? If not, you should! The tahini dressing can turn any bland salad into a delicious treat!

So, here’s the AWESOME green chickpea patties recipe with tahini sauce. Yes, I”m not modest at all. This recipe deserves a prize! 😀

P.S. I LOVE Lebanese cuisine. If you love it too, check out Ottolenghi: The Cookbook. His recipes are truly inspiring!

This green chickpea patties with tahini sauce recipe is not only delicious, but healthy too!
Serves: 20+ green chickpea patties
  • 2 400g cans boiled chickpeas (You can use dry too, but if you want to have these chickpea patties ready in 25 minutes, then you should use canned chickpeas. If you’ll use dry chickpeas, you have to soak them overnight and boil them for at least two hours)
  • 2 Tbsps psyllium husks (or one large egg)
  • 4 Tbsps nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup wild garlic/ramps, chopped
  • 1 onion, diced
  • ⅓ cup black olives, sliced
  • 5 Tbsps chickpea flour, or any other type of flour or breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp tahini paste + more for sauce
  • oil (3-4 Tbsps) for frying
  1. Add boiled chickpeas in the food processor and blend well until they have a paste-like consistency.
  2. Put them in a large bowl and blend in all the other ingredients, except oil. If the composition is too moist, add more chickpea flour. The patties should be very easy to form.
  3. Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan.
  4. Make the patties – 1 Tbsps per patty.
  5. Fry them 2 minutes on each side.
  6. Put the patties on a plate covered with a paper towel, in order to absorb all excess oil.
  7. Serve!

  1. Tahini is one of the best things in the universe! And your patties are amazing 🙂 Made them 3 times already and I don’t plan on stopping. So versatile!

  2. Hi there, love your recipes! but I have one question: when you say nutritional yeast
    what are you referring to?

  3. Hi, these look wonderful. How do you make the sauce? So I have to go to the salad page to find the tahini dressing? I’m confused. It would be more convenient, please, to include how to make the sauce with the chickpea patties recipe. Or maybe it’s there and I’m just missing it. HELP! Thank you!

  4. Hi there from New Zealand! Was this recipe adapted from the falafel recipe? Just asking as it says ‘falafel’ instead odd pattie in the instructions 🙂 Also, where is the information for making the Tahini sauce please? Thanks 🙂

  5. Ce pofta mi-ai facut!
    Nespus imi plac chiftelutele vegetariene si nautul, asa ca le-am adaugat pe lista de “must cook”!

        1. Ma bucur mult ca iti plac! 😀 Bineinteles ca nu am rezistat si am mai facut inca o reteta de chiftelute ieri :)) Linte + ciuperci + amaranth = love 😀
