Ingredients


1/8 tsp Cayenne pepper
1 can (15oz) Chickpeas, canned, drained (rinsed)
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Coriander, ground
2 tsp Cumin
1 1/2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (as needed)
1 tbsp Flaxseed meal (ground)
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp Ginger, ground
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parsley, fresh (loosely packed)
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (cut into chunks)
1 dash Salt and pepper
1 1/2 tbsp Soy sauce
1 small Yellow onion (coarsely chopped)
1 small Zucchini (cut into chunks)
4 medium pita Pita bread, whole-wheat

Instructions


Preheat oven to 450┬░. Lightly oil a baking sheet.

Place chickpeas, panko, onion, garlic, flaxseed, parsley, cumin, coriander, ginger, cinnamon, cayenne, soy sauce and lemon into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped and well mixed, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed. Taste test and adjust seasonings as needed. Season with salt and pepper to taste and pulse a few more times to incorporate.

Roll an eighth of chickpea mixture into about a nugget or cylinder shape (see photos). Place on a skewer. Repeat with remaining mixture, placing two koftes on each skewer. You should have four skewers total. Place a few veggies on each skewer.

Arrange skewers on oiled baking sheet, and if you have any leftover veggies, simply arrange them on the baking sheet alongside skewers. Brush koftes and veggies generously with olive oil. Bake about 15 minutes, turning halfway through cook time, until koftes and veggies are browned in spots.

Serve over pita bread with hummus, tahini or vegan tzatziki sauce. Dress with a little hot sauce, if desired.

Enjoy!
