chickpea burgers

Raise your hand if you've ever been let down by a veggie burger. I know, it's like a minefield when you're trying to find healthy food that actually tastes good! And the worst part is how much sodium is in those frozen patties. When you make your own burgers you know exactly what's in it because you're completely in control! I added mixed vegetables to these because it's what I had on hand at the time. But when I make them again, I'll get a little more creative and stuff them with onions, tomatoes and maybe even some feta cheese.

How To Make chickpea burgers

    Add the rest of the ingredients and combine thoroughly, then roll into the shape of a pattie.
  • 3
    Grill pattie in your skillet, or grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side and burgers are beginning to crisp on the outside.
  • 4
    Serve on a whole wheat bun, tortilla or even wrapped inside of lettuce for a healthier meal, with the fixings of your choice (cheese, ketchup, honey mustard, etc.) and enjoy! (I added teriyaki pineapples! Yum!)
