Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 2 15 oz. cans chickpeas, drained & rinsed
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
  • coarse salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • whole grain mustard, sliced red onion & roased red peppers, for garnish
  • Lettuce leaves for wrapping
Instructions
  1. Mash chickpeas and brown rice with a fork until a thick paste like consistency forms.
  2. Stir in shallot, garlic & parsley. Season with salt & pepper.
  3. Whisk egg & stir into bean mixture. Form into ½ inch thick patties (you should be able to get 4-6 patties out of this). The mixture will be sticky, just form into patties with a consistent thickness all the way around the best you can.
  4. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add patties and cook until golden brown (about 4 minutes per side).
  5. To serve, spread each burger with mustard (my fav is Trader Joe’s Aioli Garlic Mustard). Top with red onion and roasted red pepper. Wrap in lettuce leaves.
