Vegan Chickpea Burgers

Chickpea 2These ‘meat-less’ burgers are so versatile! They are delicious, easy to make and healthy! Adjust them to your personal flavour / taste preference.  The man – who hates chickpeas – literally gobbled them up and asked for more.  I used the base recipe from My Eclectic Kitchen. Her vegan cucumber dill sauce (recipe here) is an amazing & easy addition to the recipe (but not necessary). The first time I made these burgers I mashed everything together by hand. It gave the burgers a chunky texture. The second time I used by food processor: it was significantly easier but both ways were equally delicious.  Enjoy them with salad, veggies, on a wrap or in a bun; I don’t think you can go wrong.
