Comments: 0


Serve these a little smaller than most other burgers: they are incredibly rich and filling. Try them on a bed of greens with lots and lots of lemon wedges and    thickened yogurt  .



  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons sesame tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 lemons, quartered


Place the chickpeas, onions, panko, garlic, cilantro, tahini, lemon juice and rosemary in a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined.

Divide the mixture into 4 portions and form each into a patty about ¾ to 1 inch thick, tossing it back and forth between your hands.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to overnight.

Sprinkle the patties with the salt and pepper. Place a cast iron skillet over high heat and when it is hot but not smoking add the burgers to the dry pan.

Cook until well seared on both sides and heated throughout, 8 to 10 minutes.

Serve immediately, garnished with lemon quarters.
