Wash produce before use
Make the quick-pickled carrots
- Peel and finely chop enough shallots to measure ¾ cup [1½ cups]; set aside half for the burgers.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for the burgers.
In a small sauce pot, combine the quick-pickle brine, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water, and half the shallots; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat.
Carefully pour the brine and shallots over the carrots and let cool. Stir in half the cilantro.
While the carrots cool, make the patties.
Prep the patties
- Rinse the chickpeas.
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
Cook the burgers
While the patties cook, prepare the avocado.
Prep the avocado; toast the buns
- Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ¼-inch-thick slices.
Assemble the burgers
- Rinse the chickpeas.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Stir together the chickpea mixture and form the patties.
- Assemble the burgers.
