Beetroot and Chickpea Fritters

Beetroot and Chickpea Fritters

I’m always looking for new beetroot recipes for my family because we love it and I want to grow some next year too. The beauty of Beetroot and Chickpea Fritters is they are so versatile. They are fab in a wrap instead of falafel, they can be put in a bun as a mini burger and are perfect for a meze style spread too as delicious with salads – or even soups. They are so easy to make and freeze brilliantly so you can always have some at the ready.

Don’t be put off by the lack of ingredients – they still taste amazing.

Ingredients
  • 150g grated raw beetroot
  • 400g tin of chickpeas, drained
  • 1 ½ tablespoons plain flour or brown rice flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • oil for frying
Directions
  • Step 1 Course grate the beetroot into a bowl. Stir through the flour, salt and pepper so its well mixed.
  • Step 2 Put the chickpeas into a food processor and blend till smooth but coarse. You will need to scrape down the sides a couple of times probably.
  • Step 3 Combine with the beetroot mix.
  • Step 4 Heat some oil in a frying pan and form flat patties from about a heaped tablespoon of the mixture in your hands. You can put the mix in the fridge for a bit to stiffen it and make this bit easier if you find it too sticky.
  • Step 5 Fry on a low heat for about 5mins each side.
