Crispy Garbanzo Patties

Crispy Garbanzo Patties

Despite not being fried, these biscuit like patties are crispy and have a soft, creamy interior. I consider these a mesh between Falafel and a chickpea burger!

Did I mention they are super healthy and easy to make?

Depending on where you get them from, turkey burgers can sometimes taste better than regular burgers in my opinion. The problem with turkey burgers is when they are not prepared right, they can be tasteless and dry. Who wants a bland burger?! Nobody!

I served them with sweet grilled onions and a bit of ketchup on top. So delish!
