More About This Recipe

  • 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! Nice thick patties have the perfect mixture of crunch and creaminess as you bite into them. Enjoy!
