Chickpea Burgers (or sliders)
from Mark Bittman's Kitchen Express
Drain a can of chickpeas and put them in a food processor with a chopped shallot or some onion, a bit of oregano, paprika, salt and an egg. Pulse the mixture until its slightly grainy but even in consistency. Add enough flour--about a quarter cup--so you can form the mixture into flat burger patties. Sear them in olive oil until golden, about 4 minutes per side. Serve on good whole grain bread or a bun with tahini (optional), greens, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
I formed them into little sliders (made 8), drizzled with lemon juice and tahini and put a few cilantro leaves on each one. Oh yeah, and a Hawaiian Bread Roll. Mexi and I liked them. To my surprise, he liked them even more than I did...course he's always asking me when I'm gonna make hummus next...so I should have figured! They also reminded me a bit of falafel. Not exactly, but reminiscent in a certain way.
Now, what shall I make next!? Be sure to hop on over to IHCC to see what everybody else is cookin' up with MB!
