2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
1 small onion, diced
3 Tbsp. minced celery
2 Tbsp. minced red bell pepper
2 Tbsp. minced parsley
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
pinch ground cayenne pepper
2 cups canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs


  1. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the celery, red pepper, parsley, and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in the curry powder, salt, cumin, black pepper, and cayenne and remove the skillet from the heat.
  2. Puree the chickpeas in a food processor or blender. Pulse until you have a coarse puree, adding a little water if necessary. In a mixing bowl, combine the chickpea puree, the vegetable mixture, and the panko bread crumbs and mix well.
  3. Form the chickpea mixture into 4 patties. Heat the remaining oil in a heavy skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat. Add the patties to the skillet and cook for 5 to 6 minutes per side.
