Healthy and Tasty Chick Peas Patty Burger

Eating burgers can have some bad effects on your health mainly eating a lot of fried potatoes in your burger can lead to weight gain. I wanted a healthy and tasty substitute for potato in the patties and ended up making some crispy chick peas patties.  These patties are not deep fried, I shallow fried them to avoid as much oil as possible. For weekend’s brunch these burgers with a glass of home made smoothie can fill your stomach and you won’t even feel guilty for devouring more than 2 burgers 🙂

  5. Now arrange them in the middle of burger bread (you can pan toast inside of the burger if you want to leaving the top fresh and untouched) and decorate well with lettuce leaf, cabbage and cucumber according to your wish and top it with mayonnaise and tomato ketchup and enjoy the juicy burgers.
