Chickpea and Feta Keftedes

Chickpea and Feta Keftedes
Don’t roll your vegetarian ‘meatballs’! Smash them for better flavor. Keftedes are Greek meatballs, sometimes made with a mixture of chickpeas and sardines. For our vegetarian version, we substitute the sardines with feta cheese, which gives the keftedes a deeply savory note while keeping them meat-free.
