- 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 bunch parsley, roughly chopped
- 1/2 purple onion, finely diced
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1/4 cup chopped Kalamata olives
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- Panko bread crumbs (approximately 1/4 - 1/2 cup)
- 2 tbsp mayo
- 1 tbsp Greek seasoning
- 4 hamburger buns
- 1 tomato, sliced
- Butter lettuce leaves
- 1/2 purple onion, sliced
- Tzatziki sauce
In a small blender, combine chickpeas, parsley, lemon juice, and mayo. Pulse until well blended. Transfer the mixture to a medium-sized bowl. Add olives, diced onion, feta cheese, Greek seasoning, and garlic. Gradually mix in panko crumbs until the mixture reaches a thick consistency suitable for forming patties. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape them into patties.
Heat one side of a griddle over medium heat and lightly coat it with oil. Cook the chickpea burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side or until they turn golden brown. Meanwhile, toast the hamburger buns on the opposite side of the griddle on low heat.
To assemble the burgers, spread tzatziki sauce on the bottom half of each bun. Layer with lettuce, a chickpea patty, tomato slices, sliced onion, and an extra drizzle of tzatziki sauce.
Serve your delicious chickpea burgers with your preferred side dishes and savor the flavors!
