Ingredients

  • 8 sheets of store-bought phyllo dough
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas, drained and mashed
  • 1/2 cup grated horseradish root
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, mix together the chickpeas, grated horseradish root, olive oil, lemon juice, dried thyme, salt, and pepper.
  • Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a clean, dry surface. Lightly brush the surface with egg wash. Repeat with the remaining sheets of phyllo dough, layering each one and brushing with egg wash as you go.
  • Cut the layered phyllo dough into 12 equal squares.
  • Spoon a tablespoon of the chickpea mixture into the center of each square.
  • Gather the edges of the phyllo dough to the center, pinching to seal and forming a pouch. Place the pouches on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush the tops of the pouches with egg wash.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the phyllo dough is golden brown and crispy.
  • Serve hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
