  • In a medium bowl combine the egg, garbanzo beans, bread crumbs and sesame seeds; stir in cooked vegetables (mixture will be soft). Shape into six 2 1/2-inch patties (about 1/4 cup mixture each). Coat same skillet with cooking spray. Add patties; cook over medium-high heat 6 minutes or until browned and heated through, turning once.
