Falafel Burger

Falafel Burger

Makes 4 Falafel Burgers.

Ingredients

  • For the Falafel Patties:
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tsp each cumin and coriander
  • ½ cup parsley leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small red onion, minced
  • ½ tsp each salt and pepper
  • For the toppings:
  • sliced radishes
  • sliced cucumbers
  • pickled turnip
  • Maroun’s garlic paste from Cedar’s Eatery
  • 4 sesame buns, cut sides brushed with olive oil

Directions

  • Combine all the patty ingredients in a medium bowl. Use a potato masher or pastry cutter to mash up the chickpeas, until a rough paste is formed. Form the mixture into 4 patties about ¾ inch thick and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • Preheat one side of your grill at 450F for at least 10 minutes. Place the patties on the hot grill and cook for 5 minutes on one side, then flip and cook another 4 minutes, then remove to a cooler side of the grill.
  • Reduce heat to 350F and grill buns until golden brown and crispy. Build your burgers as desired and enjoy!
