Vegan and Gluten-free Chickpea Burger with Chimichurri sauce

 Vegan Gluten-free Chickpea Burger with Chimichurri sauce

3 cups cooked chickpeas

1/4 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds

1/2 red onion

3 garlic cloves

2 Tbs brown rice flour

1 Tbs chipotles in adobo sauce, omit peppers and just use adobo if it's too hot for you

1/4 cup hemp milk

Add all ingredients except chickpeas and  hemp milk to food processor and pulse. Then add chickpeas and hemp milk, of course you can use your choice of milk. Process until well mixed and the chickpeas are no longer whole. Preheat the oven to 375 and form patties. Bake for 30 minutes. They will start to brown. Top with avocado, onion, and Chimichurri. Here's the recipe for a classic Chimichurri.

1 bunch flat leaf parsley
3 garlic cloves
2 Tbs dried oregano
1 tsp hot pepper flakes
3 Tbs red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
pinch of seasalt
Process all ingredients well.

I serve these burgers on my Vegan Gluten-free Hamburger buns and with sweet potato fries. This is our burger and fries night. I also use 1 Tbs of red pepper flakes instead of a tsp because I like it like that.
