Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

    1 small roughly chopped onion

    1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley

    1 Tablespoon ground cumin

    2 garlic cloves

    1 Tablespoon Kikkoman® Sriracha Sauce

    1 large egg

    ½ cup cooked bulgur* or quinoa

    1 (15.5-ounce) can drained chickpeas

    1 1/3 cups Kikkoman® Panko Bread Crumbs, divided

    Pinch kosher salt

    4 burger buns

    Burger toppings: Kikkoman® Sriracha Mayo, lettuce, sliced tomato and sliced onion   

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and brush oil over parchment. Set aside.
  2. To make burgers, process onion, parsley, cumin, garlic, sriracha hot chili sauce, egg chickpeas, bulgur, ⅓ cup panko and a pinch of salt. Pulse a few times until mixture is still slightly chunky. Set aside.
  3. Place remaining cup of panko bread crumbs in a plate. Scoop out ⅓ cup chickpea burger mix at a time, and place in panko bread crumbs. Coat patties lightly in remaining 1 cup of panko bread crumbs, being gentle to ensure patty keeps its puck-like shape. 
  4. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes, remove from oven and flip burgers. Cook 15 minutes more.
  5. Serve on buns topped with sriracha mayo, lettuce, tomato and onion.

*How to Cook Bulgur

Place ¼ cup bulgur in a bowl, top with ½ cup boiling water. Cover bowl and allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes or until all water is absorbed.
