Chickpea and White Bean Cakes

Over the weekend I made Chickpea and White Bean Ravioli. I made enough to have several meals during the week. As is often the case I made far more filling than I needed. Instead of wasting it or making more pasta I decided to put it in the fridge and figure out what to do with it later.



When I did get back to the filling, I decided to keep it simple and just turn it into an small h'ors d'oeuvresize bean cake.  The best part is I did nothing to it whatsoever- just created the patties, lightly greased a griddle and cooked them on that.

I did make a quick sauce to dip them in.  Quite good!

Chickpea and White Bean Cakes

For the cakes:
Chickpea and White Bean Ravioli Filling (recipe here)
Cooking oil spray

For the sauce:
Equal parts vegan mayonnaise and vegan sour cream
Smoked paprika, to taste
Salt to taste
Chopped cucumber

Spray a griddle or skillet with cooking oil spray. Turn heat to medium.  Form chickpea and bean mixture into patties and place on the griddle or skillet.  Heat a few minutes on each side until nicely browned.

For the dipping sauce simply mix all ingredients together.

Serve together.
