Power pack your breakfast tomorrow with high protein Chickpea Hemp Seed Breakfast Sausages from @makingthymeforhealth!
1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup shelled hemp seeds
½ cup + 2 tablespoons garbanzo bean flour
2 tablespoons ground flax seed or ground chia seed
1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire (or tamari for gluten-free)
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
2 tablespoons dried or fresh parsley
2 tablespoons dried or fresh oregano
1 teaspoon dried or fresh thyme
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 and ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
1 and ½ teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt & pepper
¼ teaspoon cayenne (optional)
1 teaspoon olive oil
1)Start by bringing 1 cup of water to a boil. I like to use the microwave by warming the water for about 1-2 minutes in a glass measuring cup.
2)Add the spices to the boiling water (Worcestershire to salt & pepper/cayenne) and set aside.
3)Meanwhile combine ½ cup chickpea flour, 1 cup hemp seeds and 2 tablespoon of either ground flax or chia seed in a large bowl.
4)Mix them together and set aside.
5)Warm the teaspoon of olive oil over medium heat in a skillet and then add half of the beans.
6)Pour in ½ cup of the spice liquid and then use a fork to mash the beans. Stir in one tablespoon of the chickpea flour and then allow them to cook over a low boil for 2-3 minutes so that they absorb some of the liquid.
7)Place the remaining half of the beans in the skillet along with the remaining ½ cup of spice liquid and repeat the process above by mashing them with a fork, stirring the second tablespoon of chickpea flour, and then cooking for another 2-3 minutes.
8)Pour the bean mixture into the bowl with the flour and hemp seeds and stir until well combined.
9)Allow to cool to room temperature then chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
10)Once the mixture is cool and has thickened some, preheat the oven to 400°F and then take out heaping tablespoons with your hands and form them into small patties.
11)Place the patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes on each side.
