Chickpeas Fritters with Veggies Recipe

Chickpea fritters mixed with veggies are healthy, packed with good nutrients, plant-based, and some ideal gluten-free, vegan BBQ snacks. 

Over the years, I have realized that veggie-based snacks make the ideal replacement for ordinary meat patties or fritters. Veggie lovers will find this recipe helpful and useful as I have used a lot of herbs to adjust a delicious and licking taste. 

Chickpeas FrittersChickpeas have an earthy taste, and veggies are tasteless if you don’t add spices, so this is why some little tricks never mess up sometimes. These fritters are my homemade ones, not perfect like the ones you buy in stores; this is why the photos are authentic. They come out quick and fast and with less time.

Fritters with meat and veggies are our beloved appetizers that go perfectly with any salad. Some helpful information about the healthiness of chickpeas you can read hereThese pan-fried fritters are egg-free and dairy-free, just veggies and chickpeas with herbs and spices. I have sliced my zucchini in the air fryer for a quicker process; however, you can bake them in the oven if you have more time.

The ingredients:

Chickpeas Fritters with Veggies Ingredients

  • Chickpeas – I have used canned ones here, but home-cooked can be an option, too.
  • Onion – two medium shallots, as I like their mild sweet taste.
  • one medium carrot
  • One zucchini 
  • Fresh 3 to 5 garlic cloves or garlic powder 
  • Two tbsp of gluten-free flour, or you can use any flour options you have at home

The seasoning:

  • Turmeric powder ( 1 tbsp)
  • Black pepper to the taste
  • Sea salt to the taste
  • Garlic powder 1 tsp in case you think the fresh one isn’t enough
  • Red pepper flakes 

Here you can add Provence herbs, dried thyme, or oregano for a more intense flavor. As I am making these fritters for my daughter, she doesn’t like pungent tastes, so I have skipped more spices. 

Chickpeas Fritters with VeggiesAlso, you can add more veggies like corn, fresh peppers, celery, mushrooms, and even peas instead of chickpeas. While making the batter, you can mix breadcrumbs with flour and obtain some super crispy chickpeas fritters that taste fantastically. 

This is a versatile recipe that you can adjust to your taste. For example, I like garlic, and less onion, while my husband like more of them both.

On the same skillet, you will fry the patties. Pour some oil into both hands and make some nice-looking fritters. Perfection is not the key, but the flavor. Sorry for my unperfect patties.
