This is a really simple recipe full of flavour and exciting textures for little mouths. Chickpeas are a great source of fiber and protein, they also contain key nutrients such as iron, folate, phosphorus, copper, and manganese.
These are nice on their own but for older babies they go well with wholemeal pitta bread, hummus, tahini or yoghurt and cucumber dip.
Rinse and drain chickpeas (unless they are dried then following cooking instructions).
Combine chickpeas with garlic, ground spices, onion, lemon juice then blend or mash depending on your preferred consistency.
Mix in the flour and parsley until well combined.
Wet your hands and squeeze mixture into 12 small patties (if you have time, leave in the fridge for 30 mins to firm up)
Heat oil in a frying pan on medium heat, once hot add patties to the pan, cooking for 2-3 minutes on each side until crisp
Transfer to a plate and allow them to cool before giving to your little one to enjoy.
