1 cup chickpeas, soaked overnight
½ cup fava beans, soaked overnight
¼ cup bulgar
1 medium onion, very finely chopped

Drain the chickpeas and fava beans thoroughly and pulse in the food processor until lightly broken up. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to pulse until you have the texture of coarse breadcrumbs.
Gently form into patties.
