Vegan Recipe – Spicy Chickpea Burgers

Since it’s Labor Day weekend, a holiday that traditionally involves grilling, so I thought it was an appropriate time to attempt making my own vegan burgers.  I have been battling a cold all week and didn’t feel up to a trip to the store, so I searched for a recipe using mostly ingredients that I already had at home.  I came upon this recipe for Spicy Chickpea Burgers at That Was Vegan?  What a cute blog name!

Please visit the link for the recipe.  I didn’t have bell peppers, so I did without.  I used a blender instead of a food processor, and for the chili sauce, I used Lee Kum Kee Chili Garlic Sauce.  I grilled the patty on a George Foreman grill and oiled it up quite a bit first, but it still stuck to the top.  I think it would be better would be to bake it, because it would likely stay together that way.  I used a silicone spatula to get it off of the grill and it stayed mostly in one piece.  I added a slice of tomato, a heap of spinach, and some buffalo sauce.  It was yummy, but I definitely think it would be better with the bell pepper.  I’ll try it again some time soon.
