Add the basil, sun-dried tomatoes, a pinch of chilli flakes (spicy!), olive oil and salt to the food processor. Blitz until almost smooth. Add the drained chickpeas and half of the panko. Blitz into a dough. Shape into 12/18/24 balls. Place the remaining panko onto a plate and roll each meatball in it, pressing the crumbs into the balls. Refrigerate.
