Burgers For Lunch Today

Another favourite! These are the best vegan burgers yet! The 'burgers' are the buns!!! I found the recipe for the chickpea burgers on line (thanks) but forget where. I changed it up just a little. This tastes great and look spectacular. Good recipe to serve your guests.

1 can of chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup veggie broth
1 cup onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup corn
1/4 cup of chopped cilantro
a few drops of hot chile sauce
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp salt
few dashes or more black pepper
1/4 cup veganaise
fresh lemon

Combine the chickpeas with the broth. Process with hand held food processor until it looks like hummus. Add the onion, corn, cilantro, chile sauce, oats, salt and pepper. Stir. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes. Add the chopped up basil to the mayo, stir in a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and 1/4tsp of lemon zest. Cover and refrigerate.
Preheat frying pan with oil over medium heat. Measure 1/3 cup for each patty. With wet hands form into 4 inch patties. Fry on both sides until golden brown. When done, spread mayo over each burger. Layer onside with avocado and lettuce. Top with other burger half and serve. MMMmmm
