Burgers, and tasty ones, are still on the menu in a gluten-free vegan-ish life! These are slightly adapted from Chloe’s recipe in her book “Chloe’s Kitchen.” We love to serve this over rice with all the fixins – shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced (or finely diced) onion, and a bit of finely diced cucumber. Top with the avocado hummus and tahini sauce, then just attack it with fork and knife, instead of in a burger bun. The burgers are a bit smooshy anyway – when we did eat them in a bun prior to giving up gluten, they didn’t hold together all that well. So over rice is better!
- 1 can (15oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed; set aside 1/4 C
- 1/2 small red onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 5-6 sundried tomatoes, chopped (in oil or if dry, soak in some warm water for 20 minutes before adding)
- 1/2 C parsley, chopped
- 1.5 t cumin
- 1 t coriander
- 1 t salt
- 1/2 C garbanzo bean flour
- 1 T olive oil
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.You can form the patties now, or as you put them in the oil (I prefer the latter, as the patties are soft and a bit of a pain to work with). Make about 8-10 small slider-sized patties.
In a large skillet, heat about 1 T oil. When hot, place the patties (possibly in batches, so don’t crowd the pan) and cook about 3-5 minutes per side (to get a nice brown to it). Remove to a paper towel to drain.
- the reserved 1/4 C chickpeas
- 2 small avocados
- 1/4 C parsley, chopped
- 1/4 C cilantro, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- juice of 1 lemon (~2 T)
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/2 t cumin
- cayenne, to taste (optional)
Place all ingredients in the food processor and puree until smooth. Set aside.
- 1/4 C tahini
- 1/4 C water
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 T lemon juice
- 1/2 t salt
Also in the food processor, puree all the ingredients until smooth and creamy.
Place the burgers (2-3 per person) over a bed of rice, and top with the tahini sauce, avocado hummus, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced or diced onion and cucumber. Serve extra sauce on the side, if desired.
