Why should meat lovers have all the fun? This larger than life veggie burger is loaded with fresh vegetables and tasty chickpeas. It moves veggies from the side to the center of the plate.

Ingredients

1
can (15 oz) Progresso™ chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained, rinsed
1
egg
1

1
teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2

1/2

1/2

1

1/2

3/4

2

Toppings, as desired (avocado halves, cilantro leaves, cucumber slices, tomato slices, sweet pepper strips, lettuce leaves)
Sauces, as desired (spicy mustard, sriracha, ketchup, citrus vinaigrette)

Directions

  • 1 In food processor bowl, place chickpeas, egg, garlic, smoked paprika, coriander, cumin and salt. Cover; process with on-and-off pulses about 45 seconds or until nearly smooth. Stir together bean mixture, spinach, carrot and cilantro until well combined. Stir in bread crumbs. Shape mixture into 4 patties, about 3 1/2 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick.
  • 2 In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons canola oil over medium heat until hot. Cook patties in oil 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until brown and crisp.

Expert Tips

Heat gas or charcoal grill. Spray sheet of heavy-duty foil. Place patties on foil. Place on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until brown and crisp.

We think these veggie burgers are so good, they don't need a bun. Try them stacked with fresh veggies and a drizzle of your favorite burger sauce. Or, top with a fresh veggie salsa. To make fresh veggie salsa, in a medium bowl, mix 1 cup coarsely chopped red or yellow bell pepper, 1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumber, 1/4 cup slivered white onion and 1/4 cup cilantro leaves. Stir in 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. About 2 cups salsa.
