Super Supper

I am posting my first recipe blog! Jump for joy!

So, for those of you that don't visit me often....I am a good cook. I love to cook. I think almost every day that I should have been a chef, but I couldn't cut it with the type of atmosphere a kitchen provides. I just love recipes, I am good with making my own and matching flavours and trying new things.

So tonight I needed to make some supper that can last tomorrow. I had defrosted chicken but I wasn't feeling it so I headed for my "fall back" cupboard. Once I saw the canned chickpeas I knew what I wanted.

Chickpea burgers.

Recipe (Makes 8 patties):

1 Can chickpeas, drained
1.5 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup Sriracha Hot Sauce
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp Lemon pepper
2 eggs
2 tbsp tahini or natural peanut butter
1 tbsp olive oil

-Blend chickpeas, olive oil, garlic and eggs until smooth.
-Add sriracha, 1/2 cup of panko, lemon pepper and tahini blend until combined
-Form into patties with your hand, coat in panko.
-Pan fry in a small amount of olive oil.

Ta da!

I had mine with a Sriracha/Greek yogurt combination (literally just combining the two, also works with mayo) and slices of avocado.

I entered this recipe into MyFitnessPal's nutrition calculator (which I tend to do when I cook from scratch)

Enjoy. I highly recommend my toppings, but what would you put on?


  1. This looks and sounds amazing! I will need to try it!

  2. This looks amazing. My trick will be convincing my husband to try it. He's more of a meat and potatoes guy and chick peas don't count ;-)

    1. Mine too! But the Sriracha got him to try them, and he loves them :)

  3. I'm wondering... do you mix all of the ingredients in a food processor or something? Or just by hand? Regardless, it looks like something that I would actually try, and I don't always say that. Thanks

    1. Everything in the food processor. I mix everything but the breadcrumbs in first and then just pulse the 1/2 cup of bread crumbs in so they hold the patties together.
