Chef's Tip

To ensure your burgers hold together and sear like meat, take the time to chop the ingredients with a knife, then thoroughly mash and mix them. A food processor will work, but hand-chopped ingredients will retain more moisture.

Wash produce before use


Prep the burgers

  • Rinse the chickpeas.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; finely chop the scallions.
  • Remove the stems from the mushrooms; coarsely chop the caps.
In a medium bowl, combine the chickpeas, scallions, mushrooms, eggs, tahini, and falafel burger blend; season generously with salt and pepper. Using a masher, fork, or the bottom of a bowl, mash to a coarse paste, mixing well to combine. Using wet hands, form the mixture into four ½-inch-thick patties.


Cook the burgers

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 crispy on the outside and hot within, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the burgers cook, prepare the toppings.


Prep the toppings; toast the buns

  • Cut away the cores from the tomatoes; cut the tomatoes into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired, and trim off the ends; thinly slice the cucumber on the diagonal.
  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems.
In the same pan used for the burgers, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.



Set out the burgers, buns, tomatoes, cucumber, mint leaves, yogurt, and pea shoots and invite everyone to assemble their own burgers.
