Next on my obsession list: HUMMUS. Or mainly because I like to call it: HOOOOOMUS.
I can’t end buying hummus or making it. I’ve been really trying to perfect a formula lately but keep going back again to my white bean basil hummus formula because it’s that good. And in addition because I need to stop buying the edition from Trader Joe’s. Although I did discover this amazing hummus cover that’s pre-made from TJ’s; I’ll usually buy it following a morning food shopping program because I walk all over the place in Chicago and by the time I go back home from having bags + strolling 3 miles I AM STARVING. So for the present time, the hummus wrap purchases will continue steadily to happen.
Final obsession of the week?
It’s this veggie burger, obviously.
I have no idea why but We haven’t been into poultry lately, that is usually that’s could get my protein intake at meals but I just don’t want to buy AT ALL. Seriously all I’ve been craving is fresh asparagus and coffee beans. Plus needless to say any nut butter in my cupboard. Heh.
But also for reals, doesn’t this burger appearance delish? It’s kinda my version of deconstructed hummus with a few unique flavors and natural herbs. I added basil, cumin and a touch of tumeric and cayenne pepper to provide it temperature. For more about stuffed zucchini enchilada boats check out our own website. I’m in like! Plus I began topping them with my avocado pesto and practically wanted to lick my dish clean. Not really joking. I think I might possess.
You are going to like these burgers. They’re still packaging the protein and flavor, plus they are refrigerator friendly, meaning you may make them today and grill ’em up later on. I serve mine on lettuce wraps generally but if you are hungry a good hearty bun is normally justifiable.

Calories from fat: 227
Body fat: 7.6g
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, if you like handful of heat
1/8 teaspoon tumeric
1/4 cup diced red onion
Optional: 1/4 cup diced bell pepper or shredded carrot
1 teaspoon essential olive oil, for cooking the burgers
Whole grain or gluten free buns or lettuce wraps
In the bowl of a food processor, add chickpeas, garlic, basil, lemon juice, cumin, cayenne pepper, tumeric and sodium and pepper and approach until coarsely chopped however, not completely liquid-like. Transfer to dish and fold in egg, onion and breadcrumbs. You can also add in 1/2 cup of diced bell pepper or shredded carrots if you’d like. Mold into four patties, add more breadcrumb if the patties are too wet. I found that 1/2 glass was ideal for me, but it may be different for you.
Place patties on a cooking sheet lined with wax paper, cover with plastic cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes or as much as 2 hours.
Next produce your pesto with the addition of every one of the pesto ingredients besides the water to the plate of a food processor. Process several times the gradually add in water until pesto reaches a dense but spreadable consistency. Transfer to some box and refrigerate for ideal storage. You’ll find the pesto recipe here
Heat oil in huge skillet over moderate high heat. Add patties and prepare for 4-5 a few minutes on each side or until fantastic brown. Serve on a bun or in a lettuce cover and add two tablespoons of pesto on top. I also suggest topping yours with avocado, onion and spinach if you want! Makes 4 patties.
Instead of chickpeas, you should use white beans.
If you’re gluten free, use GF breadcrumbs. You can also use oat flour; I love it!
As another hummus lover, I needed to try these when I can: The effect was great as expected! These taste so excellent and are very filling!
