Description

An alternative to veggie burgers, these patties are high in protein. The cucumber salad complements the patties quite nicely!

Ingredients

2 tablespoons
lemon juice
1 can
salt-free chicpeas
1/4 cup
parsley
2  
large white eggs
1/3 cup
gluten-free bread crumbs
2 cloves
garlic
1 tablespoon
toasted sesame seeds
1/4 teaspoon
dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoon
paprika
4 teaspoons
olive oil
1  
cucumber
2 ounces
feta cheese

Instructions

1. Put 1 tablespoon lemon juice and next nine ingredients (chickpeas through salt) in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped, but not puréed. Form chickpea mixture into three ¾-inch-thick patties, pressing firmly to compress so they don’t crumble.

2. Heat a skillet over medium heat; then add olive oil. Cook patties 5 minutes. Flip and cook for 4–5 more minutes, until a sharp knife inserted into a patty’s center feels hot to the touch.

3. While patties cook, dice cucumber and combine it with 1 tablespoon lemon juice and feta in a small bowl.

4. Remove cooked patties to serving plates. Top with cucumber-feta salad and serve immediately.
