* PINDJUR: a Turkish condiment made of a blend of roasted red peppers, eggplants, tomatoes, onions, tomato paste, sunflower oil, vinegar, garlic, spices. It is easily found in all Middle Eastern grocery stores.
. In a food processor, add all ingredients from Part-1 and pulsate a few times before continuing to give it a continual processing until smooth.
. Take out this mixture into a bowl and blend in everything from Part-2...except the sliced olives. Once it's well combined, gently add the olives until all seems evenly spread throughout the mix. Cover and refrigerate the mix for as little time as 30 minutes or up until overnight if wanting to prepare this ahead of time.
. First, bake patties for 30 minutes. Afterwards, temporarily remove the baking pan from the oven to gently flip over the patties for the rest of the baking process. Continue for another 15 minutes until crispy on the outside, while remaining slightly soft on the inside. Enjoy.
The array of possibilities stemming from the Chick Pea are becoming increasingly appreciated at my table.
