Chickpea Fritters with Tzatziki Sauce

{{totalReview}}
Crispy, moist chickpea fritters paired with cool cucumber and yoghurt dip makes a moreish and healthy finger food. High in protein, minerals and fiber, chickpeas also have the perfect consistency to be made into a meat free alternative to meatballs. This guilt-free vegetarian snack is great for holiday parties and weekend snacking, packing a delightful soft crunch on the outside and a moist, flavorful center.
