  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil, or high-heat oil of choice

Instructions :
  • To Make the Chickpea Meatballs
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Place the chickpeas, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, soy sauce, paprika, cumin and black pepper into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade.
  • Pulse the food processor until the ingredients are finely chopped and well mixed. Don't overblend or your meatballs will be mushy.
  • Lightly oil a baking sheet or oven safe skillet with about half of the oil.
  • Roll the chickpea mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls (you should get about 16 of them).
  • Arrange the balls on the baking sheet and lightly brush the tops with the remaining oil.
  • Bake the meatballs for about 30 minutes, turning them halfway through, until lightly browned.
