“Tried this today from foodfit.com. A really healthy and filling snack or meal. Chilling the patties for atleast 3 hours before grilling or baking them is crucial to ensure that the burgers do not fall apart while cooking, as I discovered when I couldnt wait and decided to have one immediately :D A few hours in the refrigerator, and they turned out just fine. Prep. time does not include chilling time.”

Directions

  1. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with 6 cups cold, salted water. Boil the potatoes until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes in a colander and set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick skillet. Add the onion, garlic, tomatoes and cumin and cook over high heat until lightly browned and dry, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the tomato paste, parsley, chickpeas and potatoes and simmer for a few minutes. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne to taste. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
  5. Coarsely puree the chickpea mixture by pulsing in a food processor, adding the breadcrumbs as a thickener. (don't over-process.)
  6. Wet your hands and form the mixture into 8 patties. Arrange the patties on a plate spread with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours.
  7. Grill the burgers or alternatively, arrange the burgers on an oiled, non-stick baking sheet, lightly spray the tops with oil and broil.
  8. To sauté, add a teaspoon or 2 of oil to a non-stick skillet. Cook the burgers over medium heat until crusty.
