Serve these a little smaller than most other burgers: they are incredibly rich and filling. Try them on a bed of greens with lots and lots of lemon wedges and thickened yogurt.
For the burgers:
Beverage pairing: Mastroberardino Greco di Tufo, Italy. All the savory, earthy flavors from the chickpeas, tahini, garlic, and cilantro find resonance with a wine from the south of Italy. Greco di Tufo comes from a hot, dry climate close to the Mediterranean, just like many of the ingredients do. Its rich, savory flavors and smooth, viscous body will animate the combination.
