One bite of these warm, bright burgers may be all it takes for meat lovers to unleash their inner herbivores. A food processor makes short work of blending chickpeas, brown rice, and veggies kicked up with a splash of hot sauce. Intensify the bold flavour with a simple five-ingredient, finger-lickin’-good sauce. Serve with your favourite toppings on our Millet & Chia buns—perfection.
Preheat oven to 350F.
To make patties, add chickpeas, rice, carrots and celery in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Then add the chickpea flour, ground flax, hot sauce and salt and pepper and pulse until just combined.
Adjust the seasonings to taste and then form them into 4 patties.
Transfer to a parchment covered baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Flip the patties and cook for an additional 7 minutes until firm and lightly browned.
To make the sauce: dissolve the starch in water in a saucepan and add the hot sauce, water, apple cider vinegar and buttery spread. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened.
Dip the patties into the sauce or brush them sauce onto them. Put the patties on the buns and add your choice of toppings and mayo.
