- 2 cups cooked and drained chickpeas
- 1 cup cooked brown rice
- 1 shallot, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Dijon mustard, for serving
- Lettuce and any other accompaniments, for serving
Puree chickpeas and brown rice in a food processor until a thick paste forms. Transfer paste mixture to a medium bowl and stir in shallot, garlic, parsley, and cumin. Season mixture to taste with salt and pepper. Form into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.
Spread mustard on each patty and serve hot with any accompaniments.
Can these be baked for an oil-free version?
We haven’t tried that, so I can’t say for sure! Please let us know how it goes if you give it a try!
A cheeseburger is a hamburger topped with cheese. Traditionally, the slice of cheese is placed on top of the meat patty, but the burger can include many variations in structure, ingredients, and composition. The term itself is a portmanteau of the words “cheese” and “hamburger.” The cheese is usually cubed, and then added to the cooking hamburger patty shortly before the patty is completely cooked which allows the cheese to melt. Cheeseburgers are often served with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, mustard, mayonnaise, or ketchup.;

I saw the Forks over Knives video and have been trying to follow that diet. Thanks for another recipe that I can try!
Definitely putting this recipe at the top of my summer to-do list!
I adore veggie burgers. They are on our menu tonight, actually. We rarely eat meat at home, my poor husband! Maybe 1-2 times per week we will have chicken or fish but rarely do we eat red meat or pork, I just don't really like it so it's easy for me to cut out. And it's fun to get creative with meals like this!
Just wanted to let you know I absolutely love your blog and I'm happy I stumbled upon it. Love this recipe too, since you're absolutely right about most of us having to cut down on the amount of meat we eat. And burgers like this are certainly a very healthy and delicious way to cut down on the meat 🙂
Mmm…these look delicious! I love veggie burgers!! And I'm not a vegetarian, but I cut way back on meat a few years ago. Probably only have it 2-3 days a week now, which has been great!
I've been trying to incorporate slightly less meat in our diets too, but like you, I'll never give it up entirely especially since my husband is a straight meat and potatoes guy 🙂 I'll have to make these for lunch sometime when he's not around!
