Mexican Veggie Burgers

Mexican Veggie Burgers

Burgers are awesome! Could eat them all day, everyday. Fish burgers, beef burgers and veggie burgers, they are all delicious. For this recipe I went Mexican vegetarian and used chickpeas, black beans and corn. They were so easy to make and were really yummy.

This recipe makes 3 burgers.

Ingredients:

200g chickpeas

200g black beans

150g corn

1/3 cup cilantro

¼ cup bread crumbs

½ lime, juiced

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil

Extra:

6 mini tortillas

1 avocado, sliced

Jalapeño slices

Crème fraiche

 

Drain and rinse the chickpeas, black beans and corn. Transfer them to a food processor with the remaining ingredients, except the olive oil, and blend. You want the mixture to be properly blended but don’t overblend, it is nice to have a have few ingredients intact.

Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat and form the mixture into three patties. Cook the burgers for about 2-3 minutes on each side.

While the burgers are cooking, heat the tortillas in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook both sides until nicely browned.

Start assembling your burgers, top each tortilla with a bun, avocado, jalapeño slices and a dollop of crème fraiche and finish off with another tortilla. Enjoy!
