Chickpea Nuggets

  • Servings: 10 - 15 Nuggets
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 350 g chickpeas, boiled or 1 large can be drained
  • 1 packet butter vegetable mix, frozen (peas, cauliflower, corn)
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 g Parmesan, grated
  • 2 toast, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons Italian herbs, TK
  • 1 – 2 tablespoon breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • oil for frying


Blend the pre-cooked chickpeas with a kitchen machine and place them in a large bowl.

Blend the butter vegetables also roughly and give to the chickpeas.

Add two eggs, grated Parmesan, the crumbled toasts, the herbs, salt and pepper and mix well. It should not be too moist. If this is the case, add some breadcrumbs.

Leave it to rest in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. Then remove it and form nuggets from it. Roll some bread into breadcrumbs.

In a pan, add some oil and heat. Now fry the chickpea nuggets from each side until golden brown.

Buon Appetito!
