Cream cheese and chickpea patties experiment

dmehling | Jan 6, 201504:41 PM

I am not a cook so I do not know how this would work. I am vegetarian and on a soft food diet, so it often makes it difficult to eat the things I used to enjoy. I am looking for an alternative to vegetarian burgers/patties, because most of them have a texture I cannot handle. But I gotta have something to eat with my barbecue sauce (I guess I could it like salsa with chips but would rather not). So what would happen if I made a mixture of cream cheese and puréed chickpeas (texture of hummus) and perhaps a little peanut butter or tahini, form it into balls or patties, and then bake it. What would be the likely result of this culinary experiment? Would it hold together and would it have a texture that would be easy to chew?
