Morgan’s Post: Spicy Chickpea Sandwich

This recipe makes 3 chickpea patties and is a great alternative to a spicy chicken sandwich. These are my go-to choice when I need to make a quick and easy dinner. You can use these as an alternative to chicken for many meals and can switch up the spices to your own taste.
