What is chickpea flour good for
In my opinion, every kitchen pantry needs a bag of chickpea flour. Why? Because chickpea flour, also known as besan, gram, or garbanzo bean flour, is a great substitute for regular wheat flour. Chickpea flour is high in protein and rich in folate, iron, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, and manganese. Since it is very nutrient-dense and naturally gluten-free, it is a suitable alternative for people with celiac disease, wheat allergy, or gluten intolerance. Moreover, chickpea flour is protein-packed and unique flavored with surprisingly binding power, convenient for gluten-free and egg-free baking.

How to cook potato fritters from scratch?
These amazingly flavorful veggie patties are a great way to use up leftover potatoes and zucchini. They make a delightful savory breakfast, brunch, or side dish. Definitely, the easiest weeknight meal for all picky eaters!
- Prepare the mixture
First, preheat the oven to 390°Fahrenheit / 220°Celsius and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. While the oven is heating up, grate potatoes and zucchini. Squeeze out the excess liquid. Put shredded potatoes and zucchini in a mixing bowl. Add onion, flax egg, chickpea flour, and spices. Stir until all is well combined. At this point, you can check the saltiness level and add more salt to taste, if needed.
- Form and bake the patties
I used 1/4 cup to scoop the batter and form the patties with my hands. You can use an ice cream scoop or use your hands only. Place them on the baking sheet and press them down slightly, to flatten. Bake for about 25 minutes, until golden from both sides and cooked through. You don’t need to flip them over while baking.
- Serve and enjoy
Serve your baked potato zucchini fritters immediately while still warm or cold with your favorite dips, sauces, vegan sour cream, or guacamole. Make your homemade sandwiches or serve them alongside your lunch, dinner, salads, or other side dishes.
