  • 425 g can chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 red onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup panko crumbs or any breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tbs ground cumin
  • 3 tbs finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbs minced garlic
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to season


  • Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius (fan-forced) and line a baking tray with greaseproof baking paper.
  • Place all of the ingredients into a food processor and mix together well.
  • Spoon the mixture into a bowl.
  • If there are any large chunks, mash them with a fork (you still want the mixture to be a little lumpy though).
  • Roll tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the tray.
  • Lightly spray with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Take the tray out of the oven, turn the balls over and bake for another 15 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  • Serve with tabbouleh and hummus.
