Ingredients

  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 4 ounce can diced green chiles
  • 2/3 cup packed flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2/3 cup bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 thin slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Dijon mustard, ketchup or mayonnaise, for serving

Preparation

In a food processor, pulse the chickpeas, green chiles and parsley until finely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the bread crumbs and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the egg and form the mixture into 4 patties, each about 2/3 inch thick.

In a large skillet or grill pan, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Cook the burgers for 4 minutes, then flip and cook for 3 minutes more. Top the patties with the cheese slices for the last minute of cooking. Serve the cheeseburgers on the hamburger buns with mustard, ketchup or mayonnaise.
