Vegetarian Chickpea Burgers

serves 4

1/4 cup red onion, chopped

1 clove garlic

1/4 cup parsley

1 15oz can chickpeas (rinsed and drained)

salt and pepper

1 large egg

1/2 cup flour

Hamburger buns

Chop up onion, parsley and garlic a food processor until finely chopped. Add chickpeas, egg, and salt and pepper. Pulse until the chickpeas are fairly smooth, although a few chunks are fine.

Mix in flour and stir until well mixed (I use my standing mixer for this).

Form the mixture into 4 patties, each about 1/2" thick.

In a large skillet or fry pan, heat olive oil over medium heat, then stick in the patties. Cook them on each side until brown, at least 5 minutes.

Lightly brown buns in the oven. Top the patties with chedder cheese, and then put in buns with lettuce, red onions, ketchup, and mustard.
