chickpea burgers

Want to cook or grill a great vegetarian/vegan burger? I did these babies last weekend and everyone really LOVED them. It’s a simple recipe with a FRESH, SUMMERY flavour. You gotta try this!

Chickpea Burgers

1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained well
1 red pepper
bunch of fresh cilantro (use how much or how little you like)
1 small onion
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 cup croutons or  bread crumbs (can be gluten-free)
1/3 cup chickpea flour or coarse cornmeal for coating
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (optional)

non-vegan option / if you eat eggs – you can add 1 egg into the whole mix, and skip the chickpea flour coating.

Directions: In a medium skillet, saute the onion, garlic and red pepper until soft but not necessarily fully cooked. Set aside and let cool. In a small mixer or food processor, blend the chickpeas until almost smooth, some texture is good.  In a bowl place the mushed chickpeas, veggies along with all the other ingredients and mix either by hand or a wooden spoon. Shape into balls and press to make burgers. Spread out the chickpea flour or cornmeal on a large plate, and dip your ‘cakes’ into the flour so they’re covered all around.   Cook them on a frying pan with olive oil. 5-6 minutes on each side.

You can also grill them! But use a grilling dish as they can be a little delicate to move around.

You can serve them with some rice and salad or add into a burger bun – both are SUPPER YUMMY options. Enjoy. Let me know if you tried these this weekend and how you like them.
