Chickpea Burgers

This recipe was also accompanied with a recipe for tahini sauce but, Im not a big fan of tahini so Id imagine it's about 350 calories as opposed to the 399 the original recipe proclaims.  I used A1 instead.  Perfect.

These were good on the night I made them.  If I wouldnt have waited 3 days to eat them, they probably wouldve been more satisfying.  Right off the grill pan, these were bangin'.  Long story short: dont wait more than a day to eat these.

Recipe from Eating Well
Yields 4 servings
350 calories per serving

19 oz canned chickpeas
4 scallions, trimmed & sliced
1 egg
2 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil
2 whole wheat pitas, halved & warmed

To make burgers: place all ingredients (except olive oil) in a food processor & pulse a few times until mixture is coarse.
Form into 4 patties.

Heat oil in a large pan over medium high heat.
Add patties & cook until golden on the bottom.
Flip & cook for 4 more minutes.

Place 1 burger per half pita & enjoy!
