An alternative to veggie burgers, these patties are high in protein. The cucumber salad complements the patties quite nicely!
2 tablespoonslemon juice
1 cupchickpeas (salt-free)
1/4 cupparsley, fresh
2egg white (large)
1/2 cupbreadcrumbs, gluten-free
1 tablespoonsesame seeds, toasted
1/4 teaspoonthyme, dried
1 1/2 teaspoonpaprika
4 teaspoonsolive oil
2 ouncescheese, feta
Put 1 tablespoon lemon juice and chickpeas, parsley, eggs, gluten-free breadcrumbs, garlic, sesame seeds, thyme, paprika, olive oil, and 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.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and 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.
While patties cook, dice cucumber and combine it with 1 tablespoon lemon juice and feta in a small bowl.
Remove cooked patties to serving plates. Top with cucumber-feta salad and serve immediately.
