Chickpea and Veggie Burgers
2 tablespoons of coconut oil or vegetable oil
1 25 ounce can of chickpeas
1 large onion – minced
3 cloves of garlic
½ cup of spinach
½ cup of baby carrots
½ red bell pepper
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons of salt
Pepper to taste
Add all of the ingredients, EXCEPT the onions and the oil, to a food processor and blend until the mixture is firm and moldable. Transfer to a medium size bowl and stir in the onions.
For 3 and ½ inch burgers measure out 1/3 of a cup of the mixture and roll into a ball, then flatten into a round patty.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add patties to the pan and cook until golden brown and then flip and cook the other side until golden brown.
Add the other tablespoon of oil if needed.
