Chickpea patties

I dont usually put recipes on my blog but someone made these for me the other night and they were really tasty.

2 x 400g cans of chickpeas
4 cloves of garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
1 red onion
20g fresh coriander
2tbsp plain flour
olive oil

Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Blitz them with the garlic, cumin, onion and coriander. Blend until smooth and stir in the flour. With floured hands, shape the chickpea mix into 12 small round patties and chill for 20 mins. Heat the oil, and fry the patties in batches for about 2 mins on each side until heated through and golden. Serve warm with parsley and lemon wedges. These can be cooked ahead and frozen.

They are not bad re-heated for breakfast either.
