Meet my favorite veggie burger. The Crispy Chickpea Burger!
For those of you who don’t know me, I should tell you, I’m a bit obsessed with veggie burgers. For that reason, I didn’t want to post just any recipe. It had to be perfect (by my standards of course). First, it had to be full of flavor from herbs and spices. I don’t like a patty that tastes like beef. Second, it had to have some texture and a crispy exterior since I don’t like an overly soft burger. Finally, it had to hold together while cooking and eating. That last one is true, but like any burger, it will probably get messy while eating, especially if you put as many toppings as I do! I mean, is there a patty under all those toppings!?
So, how did these burgers turn out?
There you have it! My favorite veggie burger. I like to serve them with onions, tomatoes, leafy greens, mustard, ketchup and vegan mayonnaise like the one in my last post. For a fancy burger that will impress your guests, serve them with spiralized sweet potato fries! Use a spiralizer to make your fries, toss them with oil and bake them at 400°F for 20-25 minutes until crispy. I also like to add a lemon-tahini sauce using 2 tablespoons each of tahini and water and 1 tablespoon of lemon. Serve them with homemade fries, roasted vegetables or a fresh salad. The possibilities are endless!
Now, let’s see if my next veggie burger recipe will be as good as this one!
