Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup cooked lentils drained and rinsed
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for cooking

Instructions
 

  • In a food processor or blender, combine the cooked chickpeas, lentils, onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, parsley, cilantro, cumin, coriander, paprika, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Pulse the mixture until well combined but still slightly chunky.
  • Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and let it rest in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to firm up.
  • Preheat your grill or skillet over medium heat.
  • Divide the mixture into small portions and shape each portion into a long, thin kabab or kofta shape. Thread the kababs onto skewers.
  • Brush the grill or skillet with a small amount of vegetable oil. Place the kababs on the grill or skillet and cook for about 6-8 minutes, turning them occasionally, until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  • Once cooked, remove the kababs from the heat and serve them hot with your favorite vegan dipping sauce or tahini sauce.
