Green peas are a beautiful thing. Growing up, I loved to eat them with rice and chicken. In fact, my favorite soup growing up was pea soup with tiny pieces of ham. Being a ham lover as well, this was an added bonus to that scrumptious soup.
Nowadays, I’ve been trying to gradually incorporate more vegetarian dishes into our diet. Maybe one day I can be a full-time vegetarian or perhaps a vegan.
I bumped into this recipe by pure accident… you see, I was actually looking for quinoa burger recipe and found this beautiful recipe instead.
This is a light veggie burger that you can eat with spicy mayo and a brioche bun or just by itself. Enjoy!
Green Pea Burgers
- 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
- 1/2 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1 medium shallot, chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 to 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
In a food processor pulse peas, chickpeas, shallot, parsley, garlic and salt until coarsely chopped. Transfer mixture to a bowl and add the egg and 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (if the mixture is too wet you can add the rest of the breadcrumbs).
Form into 4 patties. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium . Cook burgers until gold and crisp. Approximately 4 minutes a side.
