Chickpea Burgers
Serves: 8
  • 1 carrot (medium-large size grated)
  • 1 (19 ounce) can chickpeas
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1½ teaspoons ground coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • pepper (we prefer fresh ground)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  1. Peel the carrot and then grate it coarsely and place it a bowl. Zest the lemon and place the zest in the bowl with the carrot.
  2. Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Place them in a food processor and addthe spices, salt and pepper. Process them just a little bit to create a rough paste. You may need to use a spoon to push some of the mixture into the processor to combine. Then add the carrot, lemon zest egg, and flour and process just a little bit until evenly combined but slightly rugged.
  3. Add the oil frying pan and heat it over low-medium heat.
  4. As the oil heats, using your hands divide the mixture into 8 and form “burger” shapes with the mixture. Place the burgers on a plate as the pan heats.
  5. Once the oil is heated, add the burgers to the pan and turn the heat to medium. Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to fry in batches. Heat the burgers for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden and cooked through.
  6. Place burgers on a plate and allow to cool for a moment and then serve!
  7. We eat these as is, but they go great with some tomato, on a bed of lettuce or on a whole grain bun!
