Garbanzo Bean Burgers
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 10 min.
These were easy to make and quite tasty. The instructions say to form into 6 patties but the the servings listed are 4. I formed into 4 patties, which were of a good size. I think making into 6 would be too small. They browned nicely in my cast iron skillet.
Delicious! I too was skeptical that they would not stand up and hold their shape. When mixing I thought I might have to refrigerate for a while, but I didn't have to. They held their shape and I made exactly except I used panko bread crumbs. I used my square cast iron pan that has the ridges in it so I was able to get grill marks. I actually think these would hold up fine on the outside grill. If you like vegetables better than beef, you will love these!
My husband is a big meat eater so he was very unsure at first. Once he took a bite he was blown away by the flavor and didnt even miss the beef.
Question about the nutritional info... Servings listed as 4 but directions say to make 6 patties. Also, are the cheese and bun included in the nutritional info. Thanks!
I was skeptical that these would be as good as reviewers said. I was so wrong. They were delicious and a healthy alternative to a meat-based burger. Very filling too. Instead of making 6 patties, I made 4 larger ones w/ the recipe and they came out great. Very easy to make, inexpensive and a healthy, meatless meal.
My anti - veggie kids each ate 2 for dinner! We told them it was chicken. They loved it.

I make these frequently. They are inexpensive, quick, and taste wonderful.
I make these for my husband and myself all the time. We add a little mozzarella (about 1/3 cup) into the mix which moistens the burger. Sometimes we top it with marinara sauce instead of the usual burger toppings for an Italian twist.
These are delicious!! Yes they are small, only 2.4 ounces each (per patty). So I doubled one for my husband. He said he didn't miss the meat, I am a vegetarian so I never miss the meat. Few changes, I used 2 egg whites vs. one whole egg, I used whole wheat bread crumbs, I doubled the garlic powder (only because I love garlic). Will definitely make again (super quick recipe).
