Pumpkin Chickpea Fritters
Place chick peas, cilantro, garlic, lemon zest and lemon juice in a food processor; pulse until finely ground. Add eggs, breadcrumbs, pumpkin puree, cheese, salt and pepper; pulse to combine.
Using 2 tbsp (30 mL) mixture for each fritter, shape into 1/2-in. (1-cm) thick patties. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Chill 10 to 15 min. to firm up.
Heat half the oil in large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Fry fritters in batches for 6 to 8 min., turning once, until golden brown and cooked through. Add more oil, as needed. Drain fritters on paper towels. Serve with bruschetta topping.
Try serving with garlic aioli for dipping.
