Finding a good vegetarian burger that is not a rip off of a non-vegetarian one, is quite a task! So we bring to you an easy-to-make burger recipe that can give you the taste of a wholesome vegetarian burger with little effort.
1Place the chickpeas, tofu and sunflower seeds in a food processor, add the onion, bell pepper, salt and cayenne pepper and process until well combined, leaving a little texture. Transfer to a plate.
2Put the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Shape the tofu mixture into 6 patties and coat evenly on both sides with the bread crumbs.
3Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. < a href=“http://www.gayot.com/cooking/recipes/main.html”>Cook the patties, turning once, until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. (If necessary, cook in batches, adding more oil as needed.) Place on the toasted burger rolls and serve hot.
