Vegetarian Chickpea Nuggets


Vegetarian nuggets made with chickpeas and vegetables

To change a bit of the classic falafel, today I offer a recipe for chickpea and vegetable croquettes. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, they will be perfect for a satisfying little vegetarian dish.

I fried them in an oil base, but I think it is also possible to bake. Then, refrigerate the dough for 1 hour before forming the croquettes and remember to press them well to compact them.

I served my croquettes with a small tahini sauce and seasonal raw vegetables: lamb lettuce, carrots and beets.
