Vegetarian Chickpea Patty Burgers

I propose a vegetarian burger topped with tomatoes, slices of zucchini coated with sesame oil, olives and a homemade chickpea and feta pea patty. As a sauce, I made a mixture of cottage cheese, mustard seed (optional), parsley and lemon juice.

This recipe is a complete change from what we are used to eating! Be generous with the sauce so that the hamburger is not choking.

For 2 hamburgers :

Chick pea patties

  • 125 g canned chickpeas
  • 15 g feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds
  • Salt, pepper

The hamburgers

  • 2 homemade hamburger buns
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/2 zucchini
  • From the rocket
  • Sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons of cottage cheese
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard seeds (optional)
  • 6 black olives
  • A little parsley

Chickpea pancakes

1- Pour the chickpeas, stripped of their skin, into the bowl of a blender.

2- Add the egg, oil, feta cheese, sesame seeds, a little salt and pepper.

3- Blend until a homogeneous texture is obtained.

4- Prepare a baking sheet with baking paper. Make 2 steaks the size of buns using a tablespoon. The consistency of the dough does not allow to shape them by hand. You have to shape them with the spoon.

5- Preheat your oven to 180°C and bake for 15 minutes.

6- When the pancakes are cooked, let them cool down to room temperature. Meanwhile, prepare the filling.

The hamburgers

1- Wash the zucchini and cut 6 – 8 slices with a peeler. Place them on a plate and sprinkle them with sesame oil and a little salt.

2- Cut the tomatoes into slices.

3- Mix the cottage cheese, crushed mustard seeds, chopped parsley and lemon juice.

4- Cut the buns in half, pour some sauce.

5- Add arugula, tomato slices, zucchini slices and again tomato slices.

6- Add the chick pea patties on top.

7- Cover with sauce and sliced olives.

8- Close the hamburger. You can eat it immediately or reheat it a little in the oven.
