I thought you might be a bit tired of broccoli (my last two broccoli filled recipes can be found here for Broccoli Chicken Balls and here for Broccoli Potato Cakes) but right along the veggie theme this week is a very share-worthy recipe.
Don’t you just love this time of year when fresh local produce is so readily available?
The mixture came together really well and unlike a lot of veggie-type burgers that end up a bit crumbly, this actually took on the feel and texture of ground meat.
Unlike most of my boat galley recipes I did enlist the held of a food processor to blend the oats and chick peas. If none is available for you, try using instant oats which will break down more easily during cooking and smash the chick peas with the back of spoon until they form a paste. More work but I’m big on options.
They fried up beautifully in a little oil with a sweet crisp caramellized crust.
Delicious with or without the bun.

And for you meat/fish folks:
Super easy and healthy alternative to animal protein. You won’t miss the meat. I promise!
Heat oil and saute vegetables until softened, about 5 minutes
Remove from heat and drain any excess liquid
In food processor blend oats, chick peas and tahini
Add chick pea mixture to vegetables and sitr to combine
Season to taste then add egg, green onions and parsley
Form into 12 equally sized balls (an ice cream scoop helps)
Heat a extra oil in pan, add balls and flatten into burgers with a spatula, cooking until lightly browned and crispy on each side.
Serve as is with a side of vegetables or load on a burger bun with preferred fixings.
Special Equipment: Food processor, ice cream scoop (optional)
