Easy Chickpea Burgers

Mmm veggie burgers. These were SUPER quick and easy... and tasted pretty good! I might have added a little more spices, but ran out of time. Serve on a vegan bun, in a pita pocket, or even crumbled onto a salad. You can put the chutney on top or just the usual mustard/ketchup!

Chickpea Burgers

Makes: 4 servings

1 19-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
4 scallions, trimmed and sliced
1 egg substitute
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Buns/pitas/salad ingredients!

-Put chickpeas, scallions, egg substitute, flour, oregano, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor
-Pulse, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides, until a coarse mixture forms that holds together when pressed (the mixture will be moist)
-Form 4 patties
-Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat
-Add patties and cook until golden and beginning to crisp, 4 to 5 minutes, and carefully flip and cook until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes more

Notes: I used a blender to process mine (not enough time to pull it out). This worked fine, I had to stop and 'mix' the un-blended chickpeas into the bottom so that they would blend, but otherwise it was quite simple. When you form patties they look like blobs, but once you heat them on the pan they form very nicely (would have taken a pic, but no time... next time for sure!). My mix made exactly 4!

My mom loved hers... you will too!
