Ingredients

Moroccan Chickpea Burgers

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ras el hanout spice blend {see note}
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • tsp cayenne
  • Oil {for frying}

Spicy Harissa Mayo

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp harissa paste {or more if you want it extra spicy}
  • ½ tsp ground cumin

Toppings

  • 15 mint leaves
  • 15 slices onion
  • 15 lettuce leaves

Instructions

Moroccan Chickpea Burgers:

  • Pulse chickpeas in a food processor 5-7 times until roughly processed {they should still be chunky}.
  • Place shredded zucchini in a colander. Sprinkle with a small amount of salt and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Press against colander to get rid of excess liquid from zucchini.
  • In a large bowl, combine all remaining burger ingredients.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  • Form 2-3 tbsp sized patties. Make sure to firmly pack them.
  • Cook for around 2 minutes on the first side, 1 minute on the second side, until they are browned and firm to the touch.

Spicy Harissa Mayo:

  • Whisk together the mayonnaise, harissa paste and ground cumin.

Notes

Ras el hanout is a Moroccan spice blend, for a recipe, see link below this card.
If patties are too crumbly, try adding an extra egg yolk to the mix.
Makes 15 sliders...but you will want to eat 2-3 for a meal-sized serving, so makes 5 or so portions.
