Chickpea Patties with Smoked Paprika and Feta Cheese + Greek Yogurt and Cucumber-Red Onion Relish

Jump to recipe

If you smush enough ingredients into one patty/cake/fritter it’s bound to be good right? This seems to be my logic, as evidenced by these chipotle shrimp cakes or cod potato cakes. It’s kind of a shame really that this will only be the third version of a savory cake to appear on my blog since I actually tend to make a lot of different varieties for my clients. I’ve made vegetable fritters in the summertime when fresh produce is at it’s all time high. I make black bean cakes year-round. There are salmon patties, and crab cakes, and tuna fritters. I never get tired of them. Why? Because the flavor combinations are endless. Also, they’re super easy! I usually just blitz everything in the food processor and voilá, eats time!

I like hummus. Do you? One look at the ingredients to these chickpea patties and you’ll know right off the bat where I got my inspiration from. I even added tiny crumbs of pita chips to the cake itself just to make you proud (!). These chickpea patties are smoky and tangy. They’re crispy and smooth. I ate them by themselves but I wager they’d be delicious slathered with extra homemade hummus between burger buns or pita bread.

On a different note, didya notice the new digs?


It took me over a day to get the design right and my eyeballs have since perished but hey, who needs sight anyway? I thought I was in the clear after I finalized the look of the blog but then I started fiddling with the permalinks and in the span of a one-button click, my entire website was gone. gone. Just a blank white page sitting there chilling. I freaked out! Luckily my host was able to fix it by uninstalling my plugins. But now when I try to re-install a plugin I get an error, which leaves me spam comment plugin-less and I’ve been getting slammed with spam Oh my god the insanity. Life just isn’t fair.

I’ll just be over here. Deleting comments every twoseconds.

    The new sight looks awesome! So pretty and fresh. Love. And I love these patties, I’ll take fritters/cakes/patties any way I can get my hands on them!ReplyCancel

    Omg omg YUM. These sound so wonderfully savory and satisfying, I loooove. I need to experiment more with Mediterranean food and you’re making me crave it now.

    Also, I so. SO feel you on website coding. How can these things be SO infuriating and mysterious?! Oy. But this looks beautiful, Steph — MAJOR kudos to you for making it work in the end!!ReplyCancel

      Cynthia, thank you! I’m so relieved it worked (sort of, still getting the kinks out). And I love Mediterranean food– especially that luxuriously pungent garlic sauce…do you know which one I’m talking about? Man, I need to make some of that too!ReplyCancel

    LOVE the new look Steph! (were you overtaken by a bout of spring cleaning? UGH, winter, begone) but spam comments are seriously annoying. I hope you figure the problem out.

    And I truly envy your clients. These chickpea cakelets look and sound amazing (pita chips?? Too much goodness) and I love the little dabs of yogurt you like to plop on top!ReplyCancel

      Linda, thanks so much! Yes, I’m SO over this hellishly cold (is that a term?) winter. So over. Done! It was beyond thrilling to be out and about the other day in just a sweater– it got up to 50-some degrees, the snow was melting (I could see grass!), I drove with the windows down…and then bam! we get dumped with another 6+ inches of snow. We’ll get over this soon but it just won’t be soon enough!ReplyCancel

    Love Stacy’s pita chips, used to buy the huge bags at Costco. Now I know what to do with those crumbs at the bottom of the bag! I’ve tried to make this type of recipe with my leftover chickpeas before, but never liked it with panko or breadcrumbs. But pita chips–brilliant!ReplyCancel
