Chickpea Cakes

Do you love Chickpeas?  Then we have a recipe for you!

When we lived in North Carolina, we used to go to this fantastic restaurant that had incredible crab cakes and remoulade.  Paired with an excellent house salad, it was the perfect pre-vegan meal.  For obvious reasons that wouldn’t be our choice for a meal today, so we decided to recreate these cakes using chickpeas.  The texture and our flavor combinations were spot on, giving us a reminiscent yet cruelty-free version.  Vegan food FTW! We ate these yummy Chickpea Cakes and a fork and we wrapped them up for a quick lunch.  How do you like your Chickpea Cakes?
