Chickpea & Sundried Tomato Cutlets (Family Recipe)

Chickpeas are an excellent vegan and gluten free source of protein and fiber. It also contains exceptional levels of iron and vit b-6. These cutlets served with a red pepper and hummus dip are nutritious and can be a part of your family meal. I hesitatingly offered one to my fussy preschooler and he din’t seem to mind it at all – I consider that a win!
