Cauliflower, chickpeas, and spinach all come together to create a delicious patty that’s bursting with the flavours of garlic, turmeric, and garam masala.

The patties are perfect for serving warm or cold with a fresh salad, or they make a great snack on their own.

You can easily make a bright and flavourful dressing that goes great with these cauliflower and chickpea patties. Simply mix together two tablespoons of tahini, two tablespoons of water and half a teaspoon of turmeric.

What is turmeric good for?

Turmeric is great for adding a vibrant yellow colour to foods, but it’s much more than just a natural food colouring.

This beautiful root also has a long history of being used as a medicine. It’s valued as an anti-inflammatory, and has been used as a treatment for skin disorders and issues with the joints, upper respiratory tract, and digestive system.

Are chickpeas a high protein food?

Chickpeas are a great plant-based source of protein, and they also contain plenty of fibre, which is great for digestive health.

However, they also contain a surprising amount of carbohydrates. 100g of chickpeas contains around 45g of carbs (compared to 14.5g of protein and 12.5g of fibre). While this means they are a fairly well-balanced food in their own right, they’re not ideal for those following a low carb diet like, say, keto.

But this tasty little legume is packed with other nutritional benefits. As well as being a great vegan protein, it’s also a source of folate, iron, zinc, and potassium among others.
