Chickpeas are rich in proteins, mineral salts, fibres and anti-cholesterol active ingredients.



Clean the leeks, cut them into thin strips and put them in a pan. Simmer with oil and little salt until tender.


Leeks are rich in minerals and contain much more calcium, potassium, iron, phosphorus than onions. They also have a double amount of vitamin C and proteins than garlic and onions.


Combine the chickpea flour with a pinch of salt and two spoonful of oil in a bowl. Then pour the water keeping on stirring the mixture until the batter is smooth and soft. Finally add the leeks.


Heat abundant seed oil in a frying pan, scoop the batter and put the portions into the oil one at a time. Flip the croquettes and remove them from heat when golden brown.


Dry them well with kitchen paper and serve warm.
