My daughter has celiac disease so, I use two tablespoons of cornstarch non-GMO in place of flour. Also just increase the spices a bit and not served on a bun. Served in lettuce wraps. Thanks for a nice change from the frozen store stuff. (Oh, when you drain your chickpeas, toast them in the oven before you grind them up.)

This recipe is yummy. I must admit, I eyeballed the quantities and had leftover chick peas so I just did the burger for one. But the proportions appeared to work, and the burger was done just right. I love the spice combinations, but I did sub purple onion for the garlic.

I did another modification too for vegan and gluten free. Chick pea flour in place of regular flour. I actually prefer this to regular wheat flours- somehow it makes it crispier. I used some EVOO and water in place of the egg.

If you want, on the side you could do yogurt with mint. Genius! So yummy. I'll be glowing all day it was so good.

This is easy and tasty, but mine tried to fall apart, too. I think it's because the carrots give so much liquid. So I would make them by stirring in some oats rather than blending in flour to help bind them. When I cook the other half of what I made recently, I think I will drop the patties into some breadcrumbs and then be sure to start the cooking on high heat to make a good 'skin' on the bottom. Still, the flavor and nutrition are great. I served these under sauteed onions with a bit of cheese, plus some flavored ketchup (added curry, onion, and garlic powders with some pepper and coriander), along with some cous cous rather than as sandwiches.

This is really great! I added 2 cloves of garlic, we like a lot of garlic. I also topped it with some smoked cheddar. Delicious!

Best chickpea burger recipe I've come across. Used it all this past summer for BBQs. Even the meat eaters gave it high marks. Did use a little less carrot than what the posted recipe calls for though. Thank you for posting!

Didn't have a 19 oz can so the recipe became a little problematic--however after arranging to use 2 cans and altering the volume of other ingredients as well as cranking up the spice, we had very nice bean burgers. I'll be doing this again!

These are a really nice change of place. I my wife didn't even want to try them, but now she loves them. I didn't change a thing and they came out great.

This is a great recipe! I try to serve a meatless meal once or twice a week and this is a great alternative! Even my carnivorous hubby likes it!

This was really good! It was a little dry though so I am not sure what to do to remedy that. We did not eat it on buns, just plain patties. I used some sour cream and hot sauce to liven it up!

These are delicious! We ate them on sesame buns with avocado and caramelized onions. I think they're a fantastic replacement for the veggie burgers I buy at the store! Thanks for the recipe!
