curried chickpea patties

diced vegetablesGarlic, parsley, red bells, carrots & green onions for the chickpea patties.  The carrots came from my garden.  I grew them myself!

diced vegetables in food processorGive the veggies a spin in the food processor, then make them sweat in a medium-hot skillet to soften them up a bit.  Return cooked veggies to the food processor and pulse with chickpeas to make a very chunky, coarse meal.  Transfer to a mixing bowl.

egg & limeAdd one whole egg and squeeze in fresh juice from half a lime.  Save the other half of the lime.  You’ll be using it later.

Woohoo!  I still have coursework this summer, but I will certainly have more time to mess around the kitchen.  Yay, summer!
