CHICKPEA BURGER & HOT CHILI SAUCE

vegan burger ready to munch

Hey guys, I have such a delicious vegan burger recipe for you. As a burger patty base I used chickpeas. You can replace them with basically any kind of bean or lentil. You can mash them up with quinoa or sweet potato too. I love my burger with fresh salad and some fresh avocado. We crave spicy foods, so a burger without chili? No way.
