I decided to go with something very simple for this burger. The only thing that I really need to show a recipe for is the spread that I put on it.
Mix all ingredients together and put on bun or right onto the chickpea burger. How much of this you make and how much of each ingredient is totally up to your personal taste. I personally like a lot of dill so I used more of that ingredient.
Also as a side note, there are 3 different sets of directions for how you can cook the burgers as well. I went with the baking option and laid parchment on a baking sheet and baked for about 15 minutes, turning once.
So my review of these chickpea burgers…drum roll please…
They were good! I was pleasantly surprised by both the taste and texture of these burgers.
Sometimes veggie burgers that you buy in the store can have some pretty odd textures, but this one was particularly good. The only downside I would say is that the burger is rather thin. Size wise, they are pretty decent but they were a bit thin but for only 110 calories that ain’t too bad.
I also layered my burger with lettuce, cucumber, tomato, red onion and placed it on a Hungry Girl Flatout.
If I did my calculations right, the entire burger will all the toppings and “bun” was about 300 calories. Not too shabby if you ask me!
Anyways, sign up for the giveaway and tell all your friends because these burgers are pretty great and hey! It’s free stuff!! 🙂
