Chickpea Patties

This recipe was modified from one in the Coles Baby magazine.  They are very easy to make and are a nice alternative to a meat dish, served with vegetables or salad.  They can also be had as a snack (cold or warmed) on their own. or in sandwich or wrap.

    Hi, this recipe looks great. Just wondering if you think it would work without the cheese for a low amine diet?

      You probably could leave out the cheese it should still hold together. If dairy is OK you could substitute for cream cheese, which I have done and works fine.
