Mediterranean Chickpea Burgers




Yield 10 burgers



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flax meal and 2 tablespoons liquid from chickpeas. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, place breadcrumbs, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, starch, lemon zest, and seasonings in a mixing bowl.
  4. Place spinach in food processor and coarsely chop. Transfer to mixing bowl.
  5. Place parsley in food processor and chop fine. Transfer to mixing bowl.
  6. Stir in olives, garlic, minced onion, oil, tomato paste, and flax mixture. Mix well.
  7. Drain remaining liquid from chickpeas. Place drained chickpeas in a food processor fitted with the “S” blade. Process until coarsely ground. (Recipe can be doubled, but do not process more than 1 1/2 cups of chickpeas in food processor at one time. There should be very few whole chickpeas left, but do not over process or you will have a mush.)
  8. Transfer to mixing bowl. Mix very well.
  9. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly oil.
  10. Using a 3-tablespoon cookie scoop, form mixture into balls. Place on baking sheet and press to form into patties.
  11. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
