Veggie Burgers!

Here’s a recipe that’s budget friendly, figure friendly, and kitchen friendly!

Friendly Food! 🙂

Vegetarian Chickpea Burgers

One 15-oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

2/3 cup packed flat leaf parsley leaves

2/3 cup breadcrumbs

Salt and pepper to taste

1 large egg, lightly beaten

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 slices of cheddar cheese, optional

4 hamburger buns

Ketchup, mustard, etc. for serving

1.  In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas and parsley until finely chopped.  Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the bread crumbs and salt and pepper to taste.  Stir in the egg and form the mixture into 4 patties, each about 2/3 inch thick.

2.  In a large skillet (or in your Forman Grill), heat the oil over medium heat.  Cook the burgers for 4 minutes, then flip and cook for three minutes more.  Top with cheese and let cook one more minute.

Every Monday is a “Reci-bee” post, where I share my favorite recipes, recipe collections, and cooking and baking hints and tips.
