Garbanzo Bean Corn Cakes

In the south they are garbanzo beans.  In the north they are chick peas.  What ever you what to call them, they keep these patties moist and tasty.  They are also packed with healthy complex carbohydrates and protein, making them a staple in my pantry.  You can use fresh corn, frozen, or if you have some left over from grilling, you can use it as well.  They are a simple, easy to make vegetarian recipe that can be kept on hand for weeknights.

Garbanzo Bean Corn Cakes

1 1/2 cups corn kernels (about three ears, if frozen thaw)
1 cup diced onion
1 Tbsp. fresh minced fresh thyme
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup bread crumbs (type of bread is your choice)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
organic cornmeal

Coat the bottom of a frying pan with olive oil.  Heat and add onion, corn and thyme.  Saute until onion is soft and corn is heated through.  Place corn and the rest of the ingredients, omitting the cornmeal, in a food processor.  Pulse two or three times or until thoroughly mixed.  You still want it to have some texture and be able to identify the ingredients.  Divide the mixture into four equal portions and form them into 1/2 inch thick patties.  Coat the patties in cornmeal.  Coat a frying pan with olive oil and heat to medium.  Cook the patties for approximately 5 minutes each side or until browned and cooked through.  Serve them with your favorite salsa, freshly made, or purchased.

I hope you enjoy!
