Garbanzo Burgers!

I found this recipe on Two Blue Lemons. It seemed to coincide well with my current garbanzo bean obsession, so I decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! They were easy to make and cooked fast. And of course, they are tasty:) The texture is definitely different than a's more like a dense cornbread. Try these soon!

{Garbanzo Burgers}

2 1/2 cups garbanzo beans, cooked
4 eggs
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 onion, chopped
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1 cup bread crumbs
1 cup sprouts, chopped
lemon juice
salt and pepper
1 avocado

Put garbanzo beans, eggs, and salt in a food processor and puree. I had to do this in two batches because I have a smaller food processor. Garbanzo bean mixture will be thick. Combine in a bowl with onion, cilantro, bread crumbs, sprouts, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Allow to sit for a few minutes before forming patties. This would be a good time to chop some veggies and throw them in the oven to roast.

Form mixture into patties. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place half of the patties in the skillet. Cook until brown and crisp, then flip.

Top your garbanzo burger with sour cream...or if you are really adventurous, chipotle mayo. Pile on avocado slices and sprouts if desired. Enjoy!
