  • Feel free to substitute cilantro with another herb to switch up the flavor profile of the patties.
  • Feel free to use any burger buns suitable for your dietary requirements eg. gluten-free.
  • Watching your carb intake? Forgo the buns and serve the chickpea patties with a delicious side salad instead.
  • Use whatever toppings you like! Some other ideas are: tomato slices, cheese, mashed avocado, alfalfa sprouts, sautéed bell peppers, pickled onion, chutney, jalapeño.
