Chickpea-Brown Rice Veggie Burger by Shira Bocar

capture_25012015_131215Shira makes a delicious vegetarian burger with chickpeas and brown rice as the main ingredients.  This combination creates a perfect protein.  She adds shallots, garlic, parsley, and an egg for a binder.  Vegans can easily find an alternative to the egg in this recipe.  Shira likes to cook vegetable burgers on a hot pan instead of a grill to get a nice sear on both sides.  In this video, she wraps her burgers in lettuce with onions, roasted red peppers, and mustard for her condiment.  This burger recipe is very healthy and delicious.  Try it.  Enjoy.
