Chickpea Burgers & Smashed Potatoes
This was pretty easy to whip up with the leftover chickpeas. I used some black bean flour to make a gravy. They tasted a lot better than they look in this picture.
11/2 cups sunflower seeds ground to a fine meal
4 cups cooked chickpeas, drained and smashed
1 large onion, chopped
3 tablespoons soy sauce
wheat germ or dry bread or cracker crumbs
Combine ground seeds and chickpeas in food processor with onion and soy sauce. If mixture is too soft to hold shape, add some wheat germ or bread crumbs. Fore into patties using 1/2 cup mixture.
They can be baked at 350 for about 20 minutes or broiled for about 5-8 minutes. I cooked them on a griddle until browned on each side and then simmered them in a little black bean gravy for a few.
