3 cloves minced garlic
1 cup of prepared salsa

1 tsp chili powder
juice from 1 lime
2 tbsp flax seed+2 tbsp water (mixed together and left to stand for 10 minutes)
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
salt and pepper

*Mix together all ingredients and let stand for 10-15 minutes.
*Saute in olive oil for 5-6 minutes per side.
*Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes to allow burgers to firm up.


  1. Posting this is akin to "cruelty to bloggers"! They both look and sound delicious. At first I thought to myself, "Oh no, not another chickpea burger recipe." but the ingredients look like a culinary festival on the palate.

    Can't wait to make 'em. Thanks for sharing! BTW... you're a really good mother to your children. Teaching them health, habits and variety through your meal planning.

  2. Well, thank you! That was so nice to hear :)
