These veggie burgers are a bit different from my traditional black or pinto bean recipe I usually use. The ingredients are similar to falafel. The end result is definitely a tastebud pleaser!

Ingredients

Patty Ingredients:



  • 1 15 oz can or 2 cups of cooked chickpeas

  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped yellow onion

  • 1 tablespoon of aquafaba/chickpea liquid (save the remaining liquid to dip patties in)

  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon of sea salt

  • 2 grated cloves of garlic

  • 2 tablespoons of fresh parsley

  • 1 teaspoon of nutritional yeast

  • ½ teaspoon of onion flakes

  • ¼ cup of cornmeal

  • Pepper to taste


Breading:


  • ½ cup of bread crumbs

  • ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika

  • ¼ teaspoon of sea salt

Preparation

Add all the patty ingredients to a food processor and blend until fine (make sure not to over blend, we don’t want the patties mushy). Mix bread crumbs, ½ teaspoon of smoked paprika, and ¼ teaspoon of sea salt into a separate bowl and set aside. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees or oven to 425 degrees. Carefully form mixture into 2-3 patties. Use the pressure of your hands to mold the patties. Gently dip both sides of the patties in aquafaba liquid (chickpea liquid). Next, carefully add patties, one at a time, to the breading mixture and coat well. Add patties to the air fryer and cook for 10-12 minutes, carefully flipping halfway through cook time. If using the oven, cook for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown, flipping halfway through. Add to a whole wheat bun with toppings of choice and enjoy!
