2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the patties

  • Rinse the chickpeas.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; finely chop the scallions.
  • Finely chop the mushrooms.
Crack the egg into a medium bowl. Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended. Add the chickpeas, scallions, mushrooms, tahini, and falafel blend, season generously with salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Using a fork, masher, or the bottom of a bowl, mash to a coarse paste, mixing well to combine. Using wet hands, form the mixture into two [four] ½-inch-thick patties.


Cook the patties

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the patties and cook, turning once, until browned and crisp on the outside and hot within, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.


Cook the shishito peppers

In the same pan used for the burgers, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the shishito peppers, season with salt and pepper, and cook, turning regularly, until shiny and starting to char and blister, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate and season with salt. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the peppers cook, prepare the cucumber.


Prep the cucumber

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim the ends. Using a peeler, shave the cucumber lengthwise into thin ribbons.


Assemble the burgers

Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on a work surface and slather with some of the yogurt. Top each with a burger and cucumber; season the cucumber with salt and pepper. Spread with more yogurt, if desired. Close with the bun tops.


Transfer the burgers and shishito peppers to individual plates and serve.
