You can make the uncooked patties a day ahead and keep covered in the refrigerator, separated with wax paper.



Pulse the chickpeas, scallions, egg, flour, oregano, cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a food processor just until a coarse mixture forms and then form into 4 patties.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat, add the patties, cook until golden, about 4 to 5 minutes, then turn and continue to cook until golden brown, about 2 to 4 minutes.

Spread condiments of choice inside pita halves and add your choice of veggies such as onions, tomatoes, sprouts, lettuce, etc. along with a patty inside each pita and serve.

Yummy! Using the avocado spread as a condiment is my favorite ;-)


  • 1 (15 oz) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (4 oz) can diced green chilies
  • Ad

  • 2/3 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • smoked gouda cheese slices, to taste
  • 4 (about 5 inch) pocket pitas, split
  • avocado spread (mashed avocado, sour cream and lemon or lime juice mashed together to taste) or Dijon mustard and mayonnaise mixed to taste


Blend the chickpeas, green chilies and cilantro until finely chopped in a blender or food processor. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the panko crumbs and salt and pepper. Stir in the egg and form the mixture into 4 patties.

Heat the olive oil over medium low heat in a large skillet. Cook the burgers for 4 minutes, turn over and cook for about 3 minutes. Top the patties with the cheese and continue to cook for about 1 minute more.

Meanwhile, mix your avocado spread or mustard and mayonnaise mix and spread on the inside of 4 of the pita slices.

Place the cooked chickpea burgers on the condiment topped pita slices, top each with the remaining four pita slices and serve.
