These falafel burgers are made with chickpeas, garlic, and fresh herbs! Vegan, optionally gluten-free, loaded with flavor, and super easy to make, they're flavor-packed and come together in a cinch!
Place the oats into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an s-blade. Blend them until finely chopped but not quite a fine powder.
Add the chickpeas, onion, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, coriander, parsley, cilantro, and ½ teaspoon of salt. Pulse the machine until the ingredients are finely chopped and well-mixed.
Taste-test the mixture and add more salt if desired. Adjust any other seasonings to suit your taste.
Coat the bottom of a large skillet with the olive oil and place it over medium heat.
Shape the chickpea mixture into patties, placing them directly into the skillet and cooking only as many as you can fit at a time without crowding. You should get about 4 patties. (Note 3)
Cook the patties for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Stuff the patties into buns and top with toppings of choice.
