The 'Minimalist Baker' blog recently put together a simple recipe for making spicy chickpea fritters. While chickpeas are often associated with dishes such as falafels and hummus, the versatile legume is perfect for a wide variety of meals.

This dish uses chickpeas as the base for crispy Mediterranean fritters. Chickpeas are an excellent substitute for meat because they are extremely high in protein. Beyond chickpeas, the fritters contain a flavorful combination of fresh herbs and spices. The addition of cumin, black pepper and turmeric help to give the dish a bold and spicy flavor. The dish also features a garlic dill sauce, which provides an extra dose of Mediterranean flavor. All of the ingredients used are plant-based, making the dish perfect for vegetarians and vegans.

These chickpea fritters are the perfect choice for a meat-free entree.
