Falafel Burgers

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

I love burgers, but sometimes I want a vegetarian option.


I have explored many veggie burger varieties, but haven't found one I like. This falafel burger, on the other hand, is pretty fantastic and feels like you are eating a burger. The chickpeas have a meaty quality to them and are packed with protein too!

First, make a quick tzatziki with yogurt, cucumbers, parsley, garlic, and vinegar.
