Spicy Chickpea Burgers

READY IN: 36mins
Recipe by salad savior

This is a variation on a basic chickpea burger recipe that I found. Requires the use of a food processor. Also to note: the burgers will be crumbly.

My husband and I loved this recipe! I give it a 4.5 rating because it tends to be a little dry, but a little veganaise and organic ketchup goes a long way. This is a recipe that can be changed to suit your palate.
