Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Make 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 and lightly beat with a fork 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. Refrigerate the patties while you warm the buns and prepare the remaining ingredients.

2

Toast the buns

In a large frying pan, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven. Transfer to a plate.

3

Prep the nectarines and cucumber; sear the nectarines

  • Cut the nectarines in half and remove the pits.
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired. Lay the cucumber flat; using a peeler, shave the cucumber lengthwise into thin ribbons. Set aside for garnish.
In the same pan used for the buns, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the nectarines, cut sides down, and cook without turning until softened and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a cutting board. Cut the nectarine halves into ½-inch-thick wedges. Wipe out the pan.

4

Cook the patties

In the same pan used for the nectarines, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat 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.

5

Assemble the burgers

Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on a work surface and slather with some of the honey-lime yogurt (set aside the remaining yogurt for the nectarines). Top each with a burger and cucumber ribbons and season with salt and pepper. Close with the bun tops.

Serve

Transfer the burgers and nectarines to individual plates. Drizzle the nectarines with the remaining honey-lime yogurt and serve.
