  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 portobello mushrooms finely chopped
  • 400g cooked chickpeas, if canned rinsed and drained
  • A pinch of dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tbsp Naak cricket powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
  2. In a large skillet heat grapeseed oil over medium-high heat. Once hot add the finely chopped onion. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add garlic, mushrooms, thyme and soy sauce. Continue to cook for about 8 more minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. Place mushroom and onion mixture in a food processor with chickpeas, cricket powder and chickpea flour. Pulse until well combined but still slightly clumpy. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
  4. Place batter in the freezer for about 10 minutes to set.
  5. Once batter has chilled form 1 1/2 inch balls. Place on a prepared baking sheet and drizzle with a tiny bit of oil and bake in the oven for 18-23 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Flip halfway through cooking.
