Falafel Burgers

falafel burgers

5 from 3 reviews


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked, drained chickpeas
  • 1 cup minced mushrooms (about 6 button mushrooms)
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup chickpea flour (or all purpose flour)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley and/or cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (2 large cloves)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (less if using canned chickpeas)


  1. Coarsely chop the chickpeas in a food processor or blender. (I use a mini-chopper to do the chickpeas in one batch, the onion and garlic in another batch.)
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mash it around with a fork until you get a chunky dough that is soft enough to stick together. Add more tahini or a little yogurt of it’s dry.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and spray with a little oil.
  4. Form into 4 patties, about a heaping half-cup measure each.
  5. Fry the patties until browned and heated through, about 3 minutes on each side.
  6. Serve as you would a burger, or serve as you would a falafel with tzatsiki.
