Meatless Monday (on Wednesday)

We are trying to have at least one meatless night per week, in the interests of health, economy and saving the world. 
This week I decided it would be Chick Pea Patties, and they turned out amazing.

chick pea patties

I Googled a recipe, but didn't have all the ingredients, so I improvised. I will put both versions here.

Chick Pea Patties

2 x 300g cans of chickpeas (but I used 2 x 415g cans)
1/2 cup of greek yoghurt (I used 1Tbsp yoghurt, 1 tsp tahini paste, 
                                     1 Tbsp sour cream and 1 tsp tomato paste)
2 Tbsp curry powder
1 egg
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
3 green onions ( I used 1 1/2 red onions)
1/2 cup coriander ( I used parsley)
Process in a food processor then form into patties and put them in the fridge until ready to shallow fry, a few minutes on each side.

I love having my recipes on my blog, as now they are accessible from anywhere..and as we are off to Australia next week, I might be needing them.
Phew, I am almost organised. There has been so much to do - definitely a lot more work having a housesitter in, making sure everything is clean and tidy. Even the dog got a bath today (of sorts), while tied to the lemon tree, with my foot on his lead. He hates having water poured on him - even though it was warm.
My big boy Cinderpuss - approx 12 years old. You can he's a boy because he has control of the remote!

But the housesitter will be worth it, saving the boys having to spend a fortnight in the cattery and kennels, and security for us knowing someone is in the house. Plus half of my spring cleaning is already done.
So no blogs for 2 weeks and I hope to have lots of new and interesting things to blog about when I get back. Bye for now.
