Lentils & chickpeas patties

I never got the huge fuss over gluten-free food till I met people who suffered from gluten allergy. The pains of not being able to indulge in simple pleasures such a slice of bread or cake for dessert. So its newfound hobby to google gluten-free recipes and understanding how we can work around these constraints and undo the impossible. This lentils & chickpeas patties recipes is not only gluten-free but also vegan. So I am guessing that’s a double kill.
