What is it about a burger recipe? Every bean burger recipe I see I want to try. Maybe I’m subliminally trying to recreate the famous Earwax burger that I love so much (if you don’t live in Chicago, I know it sounds gross, but its has nothing to do with actual earwax and is amazing – trust).
Angela did a vegan recipe link love a while back and I was blinded by a chickpea burger recipe I’ve been dreaming about ever since. So – I’ve been dreaming about chickpeas, early morning phone calls, and 6th grade health class, amongst other things. Are you scared yet?
Chickpea burgers, adapted from A Healthy Passion
You’re gonna need:
4 T olive oil
1/2 yellow onion
5 cloves garlic (these were pretty garlic-y, so use less if you don’t like garlic!)
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 c fresh cilantro
2 T fresh rosemary
1/4 c tahini (don’t know what this is? its made from sesame seeds and looks like peanut butter!)
juice from one lime
1 t salt
1/2 t freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
Let’s do this:
Heat 2 T of olive oil in a pan and add onion. Saute until soft, stirring occasionally, about 7 minutes.
Form into six patties. Heat a skillet on medium high, add 2 T olive oil, and cook for 6 minutes per side or until browned. I served these on top of salad with tomatoes, but they would be good on buns too!
