Servings               4 Burgers

 

Ingredients
·         1/3 cup dry couscous

·         1 cup water

·         1 1/2 cups broccoli florets

·         2 teaspoons olive oil

·         1/2 cup chopped scallions

·         1/2 cup chopped yellow onion

·         2 teaspoons ground cumin

·         1 15-ounce can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained

·         1 tablespoon tahini

·         1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

 

For the Tahini Dressing

·         1/3 cup tahini

·         1/3 cup water

·         1/4 cup, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

 

 

 

·         2 garlic cloves, chopped

·         3/4 teaspoon sea salt

 

Directions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  2. In a small pot, bring the water and couscous to a boil.
  3. Remove from heat immediately and allow the couscous to sit in the pot for 10 minutes, soaking up the water.
  4. While the couscous sits, steam the broccoli in a steamer for 5-7 minutes (or use a microwave or stove method, you just want the broccoli to be soft in the end).
  5. In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat and add the onion and scallions, stirring occasionally for 3-5 minutes until the onion softens.
  6. Remove the onions from the heat and stir in the cumin.
  7. Gather your couscous, broccoli, onion mix, chickpeas, and tahini and combine together in a food processor.
  8. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the bread crumbs.
  9. Form it into patties and place the patties on a cookie sheet lined with foil.
  10. Bake for 50 minutes, turning the patties over halfway through. You’ll know they are done when the tops begin to brown.
  11. To make the tahini sauce, place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined, roughly 30 seconds.
  12. Top your burgers with the sauce, throw some pickles, tomato, and lettuce on top, and serve.
