I am not sure why I am so much into chickpea this week but it seems to be the theme of our menus! I served these burgers on a bed of sliced cucumbers with a greek yogurt cilantro dipping sauce!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of dried chickpea, soaked overnight
  • 1/4 cup of greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp of flour
  • 2 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of coriander
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper
  • 1 pinch of chili flakes
  • Sauce: 1/3 cup of greek yogurt, 1 tbsp of vegenaise, 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 1/4 cup of cilantro, salt and pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven at 400F.

Drain the chickpeas and pat dry them. Combine all the ingredients in the food processor and pulse until thick paste kind of texture.

Form 8 to 10 burgers, spray a baking sheet with oil and place them on it. Spray some oil on top of the burgers as well to allow them to get golden brown. Bake  for 20-25 minutes flipping halfway through.

To make the sauce, combine al the ingredients in the food processor and pulse until nicely combined.

Serve the burger with a dollop of sauce on top, a nice green salad, some carrots and cucumbers!
