Ingredients
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 (14 ounce or 400 gram) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup chopped red onion
  • cup roughly chopped Kalamata olives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped scallions
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
For Serving
  • 4 burger buns
  • Lettuce

Instructions
  1. Place the oats into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade. Blend them to a powder.

  2. Add the chickpeas, red onion, Kalamata olives, scallions, garlic, oregano, lemon juice, and salt.

  3. Pulse the food processor until everything is finely chopped and well mixed, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  4. Shape the mixture into 4 patties.

  5. Coat the bottom of a medium skillet with olive oil and place it over medium heat.
