Meatless Meal: Chickpea Burgers

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

Need a meatless meal idea that uses some of the beans you might have stocked up on? This is a Friday favorite at our house! Reminiscent of falafel, but with a texture that's a bit more kid-friendly, and no frying necessary. We love these chickpea burgers with feta cheese, bell peppers, homemade tzatziki sauce, and flatbread!

Recipe:

(Makes 12 2.5-3" patties)

2 cloves garlic
1 medium red onion
1 bunch parsley (1 cup leaves - save the stems for homemade chicken stock)
1 tbsp cumin
2 tsp kosher salt
3 14.5oz cans chickpeas
1/4 cup flour
2 eggs
Olive oil

In food processor, mince garlic until fine. Add red onion, roughly chopped, and parsley leaves. Pulse until chopped fine but not liquified.

Drain chickpeas and add one can at a time to food processor (mine holds 11 cups and if it's overcrowded, it won't pulse easily - if yours is larger you may be able to do all three cans at once), pulsing 12-15 times until roughly chopped (don't over-process or it will turn into hummus!), then remove to large mixing bowl. 

Stir in cumin and salt. Add flour and stir until blended. Beat eggs and combine until mixture comes together.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and oil a large baking sheet (these are my favorites). Form mixture into approximately 12 patties, 2.5-3" in diameter and about 1/2" thick.

Bake 15 minutes, then flip (they may stick a little) and continue baking for another 10 minutes until browned. 

Serve with homemade flatbread, tzatziki sauce (very simple to make!), and feta. Enjoy!
