Chickpea Carrot and Feta Fritters with a pear walnut and rocket salad

Vegetarian or not, you are sure to love this one! The tangy feta mixed with the sweetness of the carrots adds a bucket load of flavour to the chickpeas. And the best part? They are super simple to make and perfect for meal prep/work lunches

Recipe serves 4 (makes 16 patties)



2 x tins of chickpeas, drained and rinsed

4 x medium carrots, grated

1 cup chopped coriander (can use parsley if you’re not a fan)

300g feta, roughly chopped

4 eggs

1/2 cup spelt flour (or GF alternative)

2 tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt and pepper

1 pear, thinly sliced

1/3 cup walnuts, roughly chopped

4 cups rocket

4 tsp balsamic vinegar


1. Mash the chickpeas in a bowl

2. Add the remaining ingredients

3. Heat a non-stick pan or put a tsp of olive oil in a normal pan

4. Shape the mixture into patties in your hand and place directly into the pan. (It’s fiddlier to shape them all first)

5. Cook until golden brown on each side, roughly 3-4 minutes each side

6. Toss the rocket, pear, walnuts, and balsamic vinegar together in a bowl and serves with the chickpea patties
