Helpful Tips for Veggie Burgers
Food Processor – Dal
Make sure you pulse and don’t just allow it to puree. You want texture in your veggie burger, so a few pulses are all it takes. You just want to break up the vegetables a bit.
Heavy duty skillet
Using a quality skillet can heat the oil evenly. This will prevent hot spots and an uneven cooking on your veggie burger.
Chickpea Veggie Burger Variation
If you don’t want to use brown rice, you can use white, jasmine or any other variety. This is a great recipe to use for next day rice.
So I seasoned it with Italian seasoning, but if you like a different flavor, you can season with seasonal salt, Cajun seasoning, etc. Feel free to season to your liking, or do a simple salt and pepper.
Instead of serving your burger on a bun, lighten it up with lettuce. Use large lettuce leaves to mimic the wrap and dip!
