  • Prep

  1. Coat a 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high. Add the zucchini, carrot, sweet pepper, onion and minced garlic. Cook 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. 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 2½-inch patties (about ¼ 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.
