  • Chickpea flour for dusting
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Mix everything in a bowl.

  • Form small balls out of ingredients, roll in a little additional chickpea flour, and then flattened them into cakes. (This additional dredging step helps to keep them from sticking to the pan or falling apart).

  • Serve with Cashew Sour Cream .
