garbanzo burger



I used to be vegetarian/vegan years ago, because of food intolerances.  I used to make these burgers all the time, loved them!  If you’ve never tried chickpeas, they are sooo good.  I love them in salads.  I real nutty flavor, not like a typical ‘bean’.  This recipe is from Simply Vegan.

Garbanzo Bean Burgers

Makes 6 burgers


2 cups chickpeas mashed (I used canned, but rinse first)
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 carrot grated
1/4 c spelt flour (or whole wheat flour, or oat or gluten free flour may work too)
salt & pepper
cayenne & dill to taste
pinch of basil & oreganoDirections

Mix all together in bowl, form 6 patties. Fry in slightly oiled pan over med-high heat until golden.  You can also bake these at 350-375 degrees for about 10 min each side.

Per burger (w/ 2 tsp oil): Cals: 133  Carbs: 23g   Protein: 5g   Fibre: 2g
