Crispy Chickpea Cutlets with Lemon Caper Sauce

This recipe makes me SO happy!  You are probably wondering what to expect with these Crispy Chickpea Cutlets with Lemon Caper Sauce.  I would say, think falafel with a crispy exterior.  I am in LOVE with that crispy exterior and to be quite honest, I wasn’t sure that idea in my head would translate on the plate.  I’m pretty pleased with the outcome.

There are just a few simple steps that begin with the chickpea mixture.  A food processor makes easy work of these tasks and I highly recommend picking one up if you don’t currently own one.  Best kitchen invention ever!

I add the chickpeas, parsley, salt, pepper and garlic.  You can choose to add any herbs of your choosing here.  I kept it simple with just a smidge of smoked paprika.  Pulse until finely minced and remove the mixture to a large bowl.

  • 1 can Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) rinsed, drained and patted dry with paper towels
  • 1 Green Onion (Scallion) rough chop
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1 c fresh Italian Parsley
  • 1 large Carrot rough chop
  • 4 oz Sliced Mushrooms if using canned, be sure they are drained and squeezed completely dry using paper towels. A 7 oz. can will yield 4 oz. of mushrooms)
  • 1 tbsp Ground Flax mixed with 3 tbsp WATER allow to sit for 10 minutes
  • 1/4 c Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 c All Purpose Flour plus more for coating
  • Oil of your choosing for frying


  1. Combine 1 Tbl of ground flax with 3 Tbl of water. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes to thicken.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add the chickpeas, green onion, parsley, salt, pepper and garlic. Pulse a few times until it's a coarse mixture. Remove to a large bowl.
  3. No need to clean the processor, just add the carrots and mushrooms. It is imperative that the mushrooms (if using canned) are squeezed completely dry. Process until finely minced. Add to the chickpea mixture.
  4. Add the flax mixture, flour and panko breadcrumbs. Stir to combine. If it seems to moist, add more flour or panko. It will still be sticky, but should be workable. Damp hands make forming the cutlets easier.
  5. Using a handful of the mixture, form into a ball and then into a rough cutlet shape.  Proceed directly into the breadcrumbs. Completely coat the formed cutlets in light coating of flour.  I found it simpler to do this when patting between my hands.
  6. Heat a pan over medium high to high heat and add oil suitable for pan-frying. Add the cutlets to the pan 1 at a time and fry until golden on one side. Flip and repeat. Remove to paper toweling to cool.
  7. Combine all of the ingredients for the dipping sauce and serve warm.
