Golden Patties with Caramelised Onion

 These patties are served with a side salad and sliced taro.
They taste great in a sandwich, ideal for a picnic lunch. Children love them. They also freeze well.

Makes 10 medium size patties
 400g cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 cup rolled oats
1 large onion finely chopped
1 tablespoon braggs liquid aminos*
1 heaped teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon vegetable or chicken style stock powder (vegan)*

 - Blend rolled oats in a food processor, place in a mixing bowl. 
- Put drained chickpeas in a food processor and pulse until pureed. Add to bowl.   
- Add rest of ingredients and mix together. Mixture should be firm and just moist. Take heaped tablespoons of mixture and form into patties. 
- Coat patties in a mixture of 2 tablespoons each of flour and nutritional yeast flakes*. Shake off excess flour. 
- Heat oil in a non stick pan, add patties, reduce heat to low. Cover pan with a lid and cook patties 10 minutes each side.   
- Remove patties from heat and place on a serving plate.

Caramalised onion
 2 large onions thinly sliced
2 Tablespoons olive oil

- Heat oil in a fry pan then add sliced onion. 
- Toss the onions in oil and cook on high heat for two minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook onions slowly. Cook 20 – 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. At the end of cooking time, onions should be sweetly caramelized and golden in color.
 - Serve patties with a flavorsome gravy topped with caramelized onions.
