At Costco I tried a sample of the Veggie Patch Mediterranean Spinach & Chickpea Patties and I was sold. These patties have the taste of a restaurant felafel… with a spinach twist! Felafel is normally shaped like balls, but this particular Veggie Patch product is shaped like burger patties.
If you don’t like spinach, you don’t need to worry – the taste of the spinach is very subtle and is in perfect harmony with the felafel taste. My small kids who don’t like spinach ate those patties and asked for more – and of course, I didn’t mention that there is spinach in it :)
The package of the Veggie Patch Mediterranean Spinach & Chickpea Patties From Costco has 12 veggie patties in it. You keep them refrigerated, or freeze them if you are not planning to use them before the expiration date.
To cook these veggie felafel patties from Costco, you can use either a microwave (just microwave the patties until hot) or the oven. Here are the cooking instructions from the package of Veggie Patch Mediterranean Spinach & Chickpea Patties for the conventional oven: (1) Preheat oven to 375F. (2) Place patties on lightly greased baking sheet. (3) Bake 11-13 minutes, until crisp.
I wanted the veggie patties to be crispy, so I used the oven. And crispy they were! These felafel veggie patties had the perfect crispy texture I was looking for, and make a very enjoyable dinner!
