Chickpea & Lentil Burgers

Chickpeas are a nutritional powerhouse!  They are great source of protein and combined with a whole grain such as brown rice, become a complete protein.  High in fibre and phytochemicals called saponins, which can act as antioxidants, they may help lower the risk of breast cancer, protect against osteoporosis and minimize hot flushes in post-menopausal women.


1 can lentils

1 can chickpeas

1 cup cooked pumpkin

1 cup cooked zucchini

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic
