Chick Pea Burgers - From Scratch

{as seen on FROM SCRATCH}

Who doesn't love a good veggie burger!? Once again I found this really amazing, easy, and yummy recipe for a CHICK PEA veggie burger from Emma at From Scratch. She always has the best recipes and idea. Because Emma is a vegetarian I had to veganize the recipe a little since it called for 2 eggs 0___0 no problem cause I just used use water, olive oil, and baking powder to make a little "egg" mixture. It worked out perfect and can I just tell you these burgers came out so delicious and they were for sure nutritious too. haha Aaron loved them and since he is Vegetarian also (not vegan) I added some cheese to his and he was a happy camper! I love trying new recipes but the best part is I get to cross out another item off my SUMMER MANIFESTO list! YAY!! I'm getting there slowing but surely lol If you have some extra time and you want to try something new you should really test this out, it's about 20mins (or less) prep time and about 2 minutes to cook. I also sided our plates with some homemade potato wedges, YUM!
