- 1 15- ounce can chickpeas also known as garbanzo beans
- 3/4 cup cilantro leaves
- 1/3 cup seasoned Panko breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup red onion chopped
- 1 vegan egg replacer equivalent to 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
Into a food processor with a blade attachment, add the chickpeas, cilantro, breadcrumbs, red onion, egg replacer, salt, and pepper. Pulse until combined but still somewhat chunky in texture.
Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball then flatten with the palm of your hand to form four 4-inch patties.
Set a large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the patties and cook for about 4 minutes. Turn and cook for an additional 4 minutes. The exact cooking time for each side may vary slightly but what you are looking for is that the patties are golden and lightly crisp.
Serve on toasted burger buns with your favorite toppings.
