Easy Croquettes

Croquettes make a great appetizer for a dinner party, a great picnic lunch, or even just a great dinner with a lovely side or rice or beans. This recipe is super easy to cook up and tastes delicious. Add a bit of veganaise, avocado slices, chives, lemon zest, or anything else to enhance the delicious flavor and make it a bit of your own. You can also store these in the refrigerator for later meals if need be.

Makes about 20


4 medium gold potatoes, cubed
5 garlic cloves, minced
1½ cups water
1 heaping Tbs tahini
½ tsp salt
1¼ cups garbanzo flour
½ cup diced roasted red bell pepper
½ cup chopped green olives
⅔ cup fresh parsley
1 tsp pepper
lemon zest
avocado oil


  1. Combine the potatoes, garlic, and water in a large frying pan. Cover (with a slight vent) and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until all the water has been absorbed and potatoes are for-tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Transfer the potatoes to a blender and mix until well mashed, leaving no lumps. Transfer the potatoes to a mixing bowl with the tahini and salt. Mix until just combined. Stir in flour until well combined. Fold in the peppers, olives, parsley, pepper, and lemon zest.
  3. Chill the dough in the freezer for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400F while the dough chills. Shape the dough into twenty 2in round patties. Transfer to a nonstick baking sheet. Brush both sides with oil and bake for 40 minutes, flipping them over half way through.
