Chickpea Burgers!

Some days I don't want meat, although I'm noticing those days are becoming more common. I usually make some sort of burger every week, any excuse to make my wholewheat buns...whether it's a classic beef burger, turkey or even lentils. But today I decided to go for something different and do a chickpea burger. I've used chickpeas before for burgers, but each time I do something a little different. It's not always on purpose, I just don't remember what I did the last time to replicate it. And that's okay because I like definitely like switching things up! When I got in the kitchen I had zero plans on what I was doing. I just opened the refridgerator and started pulling things out that I thought would eventually come together and it all worked together. Even though these patties weren't as hearty as my lentil burgers because they were a little thinner, they were still SUPER delicious! My son didn't even know they were "bean" burgers and LOVED it! I don't know why I feel like if you can fool kids then it's a WIN!

So here's what went into my chickpea burgers


-red, yellow, orange sweet peppers



-chipotle powder

-smoked paprika

-dried basil

-masala red tandori



-cooked brown rice

-oil to cook patties (I used olive oil)

These chickpea burgers taste really good with homemade wheat buns. Click Here for the recipe so you can whip up a fresh batch.....they are really good and in my opinion take the burgers to a whole new level! I dressed my burger with a sauce made of katchup, mayo, mustard and relish...and topped it with some fresh slices of sweet red pepper, banana peppers and a couple of fresh basil leaves. I also made a small side of baked herb potato wedges. Yummy!
