Chickpea Fritters with Lemon-Herb Yogurt
and shredded brussels sprouts salad

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min
Chickpea fritters make a fast, filling vegetarian main dish, especially with tart yogurt sauce to serve over top. Shredding brussels sprouts to serve on the side results in a flavor and crunch that are completely different than when sprouts are cooked.


Chickpea Fritters:
  • Shallots - 1 clove
  • Beans, garbanzo (14 oz / 387 g) - 2 cans , drained and rinsed
  • Flour - 2/3 cup
  • Eggs - 3
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Black pepper - 1/4 tsp
Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad:
  • Pecan halves - 1/2 cup , chopped
  • Brussels sprouts - 1 lb
  • Mustard, Dijon - 1 tsp
  • Honey - 1 tsp
  • Vinegar, red or white wine - 1 tsp
  • Oil, olive - 3 Tbsp
  • Cranberries, dried - 1/3 cup (sub dried cherries)
  • Cheese, goat - 3 oz
Lemon Tarragon Yogurt:
  • Tarragon, fresh - 2 tsp , chopped (sub fresh thyme)
  • Lemons - 1/2 , zest of
  • Yogurt, plain or Greek - 3/4 cup


  1. Pecans / Shallots - Prep as directed. If making the vegetarian delicata squash salad on Wednesday, go ahead chop the pecans for that meal too. Leave the pecans raw for tonight's meal raw or, if you prefer you can toast them in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently until fragrant, ~4 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Prep yogurt - Chop tarragon. Zest lemons. Combine with yogurt. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead.)
  3. Brussels sprouts - Put the slicing disk in a food processor and shred sprouts (you can also thinly slice them by hand or with a mandolin). Watch this video on shredding carrots in the food processor for tips - just sub whole brussels sprouts for the carrots. Wipe out the inside of the food processor bowl and return it to the stand. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Prep fritters - Rinse and drain beans. Put the chopping blade in the food processor (you can also mash the mixture with a pastry blender or your hands) and pulse beans and shallots until they form a coarse paste. Add flour, eggs, salt and pepper and pulse just until combined. Test the batter to see if it will easily stick together when pressed together. If batter is not sticky enough, add an additional egg. Press batter into mini patties, forming 2-3 per person. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
