So our fathers are special and we all want to make this Father’s Day very special and memorable for the entire family and obviously any event without yummilicious food is incomplete.
My Dad and my Husband basically the two men in my family are super fond of burgers and their idea is to dip the burger into the garlic flavored fries instead of any ketchup…. Hahahhaha…. Trust me it’s not an imagination they actually shower their burgers with garlic fries. I know this sounds delicious and mouthwatering but I have to keep a check on their healthy eating as well irrespective of the occasion.
So I came up with the idea Chickpeas Zucchini Burger with a balance of protein and green vegetable and their love for grilling. Also, I won’t worry about the nutrition part even if they drown their burgers into their favorite garlic fries. HAHAHAHA!!!
I combined mashed chickpeas for protein and healthy carb, and added grated zucchini since its summer and they are the best summer green veggie, some grated carrots since they add color and flavor and enhances vitamins in the burger and I spiced it with fresh jalapeno peppers. I used chickpea flour for binding and seasoned with salt, sriracha sauce and cumin powder and flavored with dried garlic.
I suddenly felt a gush of burger craving. Am I dreaming? Huh! I guess I need to make some burgers pre- Father’s Day! 🙂
For me, this burger is going to be in a lettuce wrap form along with some side salad but its super delicious with burger buns. Just add lettuce, tomatoes, and onions between the burger buns along with the Chickpeas Zucchini Burger Patties and spread some dressing on the inside of the buns like my earlier tofu sriracha dressing post. MMMM! I got to go now and make a burger for myself right away.
I’m seriously drooling!!! 🙂
