Chickpea Sweet Potato Patty with Avocado Hummus

Chickpea Sweet Potato Patty with Avocado Hummus

OK, guys, here are some delicious patties that will make your life so much easier and they're not your typical fried veggie patties that involve a lot of ingredients and time to prepare.

I am all about keeping it simple yet interesting so I did a lot of experimenting to get to the to the recipe I am about to share with you. 

As I mentioned before, I wanted to have an easy recipe that didn't require a lot of ingredients nor too much cooking time, it had to be flavourful and of course nutrition is always a must-have on the list.

You will need 20 to have this meal ready. For the patties you only need chickpeas, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and shallots. The potatoes and sweet potatoes need to be boiled and peeled, and the shallots slightly panfried in sunflower oil.

Once you have all the ingredients ready put them in a bowl, add salt and either use you hands or an immersion blender to create a semi-homogenous mixture, it doesn't matter if there are big chunks left. Just make sure that if you are using your hands to mix everything together, you've to allow some time for the potatoes and shallots to cool off a little bit so you don't burn yourself. 

With this mixture make the patties, you can make them as big or as little as you want, and in whatever shape you prefer. To finish them off, coat the patties with the sesame seeds, you'll be adding an extra layer of texture and contributing to the nutritious qualities of this meal.

Sesame seeds are becoming a very popular item in many kitchens and are incredibly healthy. Surprisingly, one of the most valued nutrient in sesame seeds (no matter if black or white) is Calcium. This is quite important among the vegan community since most people think of dairy products when they think of calcium but you can find this mineral in certain seeds such as sesame seed, chia seeds and flax seeds.

It is super important to get your daily dose of Calcium, it helps maintain bone and dental health, lowers blood pressure, it helps you beat PMS symptoms, and some studies suggest that it reduces risk of colon cancer and kidney stones. You can be sure sesame seeds will help you hit the mark and never have to recur to dairy to do so.

To accompany this delicious patties I made a creamy hummus with a twist, I added avocado and cherry tomatoes to the original recipe which make it both creamy and riveting.

Hummus is a great addition to make any meal more interesting, regardless of using the original recipe or if you decide to switch it up a little bit. Even though it is one of those things that seem complicated and laborious to make it is the complete opposite, just put all the ingredients in a food processor or a blender and that is it! nothing more! 

That's it, simple and delicious! Enjoy!
