Method

  1. Mash half the chickpeas in a bowl, then stir in the remaining chickpeas, the onion, garlic, mashed potatoes, lemon zest and juice, parmesan, egg, herbs, two of the goat’s cheeses and a good amount of sea salt and pepper. When combined, divide into 12 and, using floured hands, shape into thick patties. Dust with flour and transfer to a plate. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the patties for about 3-4 minutes on each side until well browned and hot all the way through. Slice the remaining goat’s cheeses into 12, and lay a slice on each pattie. Place under a hot grill to melt the cheese. Serve hot.

Delicious patties -Lemon is the star here. Didn't have goats cheese so I used feta in the mix and didn't melt cheese on top. Had them for lunch the following day - highly recommend.
