Garbanzo Burgers

If you have a vegetarian in the house and are hoping for burgers, try Garbanzo burgers! Garbanzo beans provide tons of fiber and are a great source of protein, which is really important when eating a vegetarian diet. Garbanzo Burgers are low in fat and high in dietary fiber, so they’re a great addition to anyone’s diet – vegetarian or not!

Even better, these burgers cost very little to make (especially when compared to buying meat or remade veggie burgers), freeze beautifully (so you can make them and keep them on hand for whenever your crew feels like burgers), and make everyone smile when they take a bite! 

It’s also fun to let your crew choose their favorite toppings for their burgers. What toppings will you add to your garbanzo burgers? We love to add avocado, tomato, and sumac yogurt sauce.
