Ingredients

1
15.5-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
1/2
cup
fresh flat-leaf parsley
1
clove garlic, chopped
1/4
teaspoon
ground cumin
kosher salt and black pepper
2
tablespoons
all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons
olive oil
1/2
cup
low-fat yogurt (preferably Greek)
3
tablespoons
fresh lemon juice
8
cups
mixed greens
1
cup
grape tomatoes
1/2
small red onion, thinly sliced
pita chips (optional)

Directions

  1. In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas, parsley, garlic, cumin, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper until coarsely chopped and the mixture comes together when gently squeezed.
  2. Form the mixture into eight ½-inch-thick patties and coat with the flour, tapping off any excess.
  3. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties, turning carefully, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the yogurt, lemon juice, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  5. Divide the greens, tomatoes, onion, and chickpea patties among plates. Drizzle with the dressing and serve with the pita chips (if using).
