  • 2 x 400g cans Essential Chickpeas In Water, drained over a bowl, liquid (aquafaba) reserved
  • 450g carrots, scrubbed and coarsely grated
  • 85g plain flour
  • 2 tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Peppery Pul Biber, plus extra to serve
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 300g pouch wheatberries, lentils & green vegetables
  • 270g pack cherry vine tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • 90g pack rocket
  • 230g pot tzatziki, to serve


  1. Put ½ the chickpeas into a wide, shallow bowl and crush well with a fork. Add the carrots, flour and pul biber, then season.

  2. Mix together with your hands, then add 4 tbsp aquafaba and mix again. Press into 12 rough, flat rounds.

  3. Warm 1 tbsp oil in a nonstick frying pan set over a medium heat. Sizzle the fritters in 2-3 batches for 4-5 minutes on each side, using a little more oil with each batch. Press down with a fish slice a few times as they cook, until golden and crisp.

  4. Heat the wheatberries mix according to pack instructions, then fold the remaining chickpeas, the tomatoes and rocket into it. Season. Serve with the fritters, spoonfuls of tzatziki and a pinch more pul biber.

Cook’s tip

Using some of the liquid from the can of chickpeas (also called aquafaba), means that you don’t need to use any egg to help to bind the fritter mixture. To make the recipe vegan, you could whip up a little plant-based yogurt tzatziki using crushed garlic, some dried or fresh mint, and a little chopped cucumber.
