  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas (or 1 can, drained and rinsed)
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour (or any flour of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil, for frying
  • Optional: dipping sauce of your choice


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mash the cooked chickpeas using a fork or potato masher until they reach a chunky consistency.
  2. Add the nutritional yeast, chickpea flour, chopped onion, minced garlic, chopped parsley, lemon juice, ground cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper to the mashed chickpeas. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly combined and the mixture holds together.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. While the oil is heating, shape the chickpea mixture into small patties or fritters using your hands, pressing firmly to compact the mixture.
  5. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the fritters in the skillet, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook the fritters for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
  6. If needed, add more olive oil to the skillet before cooking additional batches of fritters.
  7. Once all the fritters are cooked, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  8. Serve the Vegan Cheesy Chickpea Fritters warm with your favorite dipping sauce on the side.
