Full of fibre, folic acid, iron, maganese and protein, chickpeas are the main ingredient in this simple dish. They are also a very low fat complete protein food, which makes them all that much more appealing.


1 can chickpeas, drained (or about 2 cups of cooked)
2 TBSP flour
1 tsp cumin
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in food processor, and blend well.  Shape into small balls (1 1/2 inches in size) and fry in oil to brown on all sides. Serve hot in a pita, or as a side in place of meat.
