Meatless Monday with Vegan Cauliflower Chickpea Patties

Welcome (back) to the Miratel blog for another edition of our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Once we are past the Labour Day long weekend, the air starts getting that distinct autumn crispness which is a welcome relief after the very hot summer we just had. It’s a good think global warming isn’t real (read: sad sarcasm). Even though it’s getting cooler, we still have some great crops that grow in Ontario and cauliflower is one of them. This hardy vegetable is a cousin of broccoli and cabbage and is packed with vitamin C and fibre. With the added fibre and protein of chickpeas, today’s recipe for Vegan Cauliflower Chickpea Patties are a delicious and nutritious powerhouse that will satisfy you regardless of the temperature. This tasty recipe comes courtesy of Dora Daily of Dora’s Daily Dish via One Green Planet. Do yourself a favour (and a flavour) and check out both blogs if you’re interested in living vegan.

Ingredients (makes 10 patties)

  • 1 head cauliflower, florets broken apart
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsedvegan cauliflower chicpea patties
  • 1 bell pepper, diced small
  • 1 onion, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs (see Note for options)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Boil or steam cauliflower until soft.
  3. Sauté onion and bell pepper over low heat until soft.
  4. Add garlic and sauté for another minute or so.
  5. In a large bowl, smash chickpeas up well with a fork or the bottom of a cup.
  6. Add cauliflower and smash up as well.
  7. Add all other ingredients and stir until combined.
  8. The mix should be wet, but come together in a ball without falling apart.
  9. Carefully make a ball in your hands with the mix.
  10. Press ball between hands to make a patty.
  11. Place patty on oiled pan or baking dish.
  12. Continue with the rest of the mix.
  13. Bake for 25 minutes, flip the patties, and bake for another 20 minutes, or until browned.

You can serve these super tasty patties on a bun like a regular burger or as a topper for salads and veggie scrambles or you can just eat them as a snack.

  1. Just wondering if your recipes are actually created by you or just reposted by someone? Do you actually test them and does the person posting them actually have a cooking background? The recipes always appear delicious and I anxiously try them. However, I am always disappointed. I have also shared with friends to test them and they are never impressed either. For example we have tried the chickpea pattie recipe several times and they never turn out. Crumbly dry tasteless.
    Just some feedback for the poster of these recipes I would surely hope they are testing these recipes first. I came across these on Facebook.
    Thank you.

  2. I agree they don’t even get brown all over and my oven is on over 45 min for 9 patties hardly seems worth all this work …..You can not pick them up to dip into a sauce because they crumble …… there has to be a better recipe out there!,
