Smoky Falafel Burgers (They're Vegan & Gluten-Free!)

Spice up your lunch routine with these smokey falafel burgers! Smoked paprika is a less spicy and sweeter variety of cayenne pepper, and adds a unique flavor to this Mediterranean classic.

These falafel burgers use smoked paprika and cayenne pepper for a double dose of antioxidants!

Ingredients

  • 2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup red onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley (packed)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup quick oats (gluten free)
  • ½ cup shredded carrots

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a food processor, combine chickpeas, red onion, garlic, parsley, olive oil, lemon juice, smoked paprika, chili powder and sea salt. Blend until smooth, similar to a chunky hummus! Transfer mixture to a bowl and fold in quick oats and shredded carrots.

Use a ¼ cup measure to scoop mixture and form into patties. Place evenly on parchment paper.

Cook for 15-20 minutes, flip and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes or until crispy and firm to touch.

Serve alone or in a pita sandwich, enjoy!
