Green Chickpea Patties with Tahini

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!

  • 800 g canned 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
  • 1 egg or 2 tbsp psyllium husks
  • 4 Tbsps nutritional yeast
  • 1 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 cup wild garlic/ramps chopped
  • 1 onion diced
  • 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
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • oil 3-4 Tbsps for frying


  • Add boiled chickpeas in the food processor and blend well until they have a paste-like consistency.
  • 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.
  • Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan.
  • Make the patties – 1 Tbsps per patty.
  • Fry them 2 minutes on each side.
  • Put the patties on a plate covered with a paper towel, in order to absorb all excess oil.
  • Serve!

I can't find wild garlic where I live. What can I substitute for wild garlic?

You can use green garlic or just regular garlic - a couple of cloves.

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!

Thanks, Kathryn! :) There's no sauce recipe. Just drizzle tahini on top. :)
