  1. Place garbanzo beans in the bowl of a food processor with bell pepper, carrot, garlic, red chile pepper, cilantro, tahini, salt, and pepper. Place the lid on the food processor, and pulse 5 times, then scrape the sides, and pulse the mixture until it is evenly mixed. If the mixture looks dry, add olive oil.
  2. Refrigerate garbanzo bean burger mixture for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease with cooking spray.
  4. Shape the chilled garbanzo bean burger mixture into patties.
  5. Bake 20 minutes, then carefully flip burgers and bake 10 more minutes, or until evenly browned.

both my boyfriend and i thought these were so so sooo good! i was afraid at first that the mixture was too gloppy, but i plopped it by the spoonful on the baking sheet and they came out great. i didn't have any red chilies so i used a few pinches of crushed chili flakes. also, i made the patties early in the day and just let them sit. hours later i warmed them on our george foreman grill. this is a super easy and yummy recipe that we'll definitely make again and again.

These were respectable. I would definitely add something for a binder. They fell apart really easily. We put these in pita, with a raita sauce, spinach, tomatos, banana peppers, klamata olives and feta. Super yummy. They turned out a little spicy for my kids, so next time I'll forgo the chilis.

These were good - but you need to add and egg and some bread crumbs or oatmeal as a binder. We liked them a lot - I made the patties into rectangles because my wraps are rectangular shape. I spread some chummus on the wrap, placed the garbanzo bean burgers on top and added some slaw and some spinach leaves. It was really good - but I prefer the Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers from this site. This is a nice variation.

Very easy and good! I added diced white onion to the mix as well as cumin and garlic salt. I added just a very little olive oil, but maybe I should have put in a bit more because the patties fell apart easily.

nice flavour but they aren't really burgers, I tried adding some binding to the second batch, and still they were mush. But nice flavour.

This does need a binder, some breadcrumbs, and more seasonings (I added garlic, lemon pepper, and oregano). Making those changes turns it into a five star burger, making the recipe as-is results in a four star filling for pita bread, topped with greek yogurt sauce.

Very Delicious! I make these as a man dish with a veggie and some ketchup, Fantastic!

They were really good! Maybe a couple of ingredients missing can’t seem to put my finger on it though!
