These burgers had a great taste! Just left out two things the garlic and onion (allergic) but did put in the canola oil just to help hold things together. The spices gave it enough flavor and the wheat germ gave it a nice slight crunch. Tasted great with some greek yogurt, lettuce and tomato. Worth giving it a try as a great healty alternative!
These chickpea burgers are similar to falafel, but with the added whole-grain goodness of brown rice and wheat germ. Serving them on pita breads with thick slices of tomato and a dab of plain yogurt continues the Middle Eastern theme, but if you want to take it even further, drizzle with a little sauce made with minced garlic and tahini thinned with water and lemon juice.

maybe here in the UK our chickpeas aren't as soft/mushy as they are in the US, but i found this recipe as it was written too dry to hold together as a burger, so i blitzed 1/3 of the mix in the food processor with an egg and some gram (chickpea) flour and then mixed it back with the rest of the mix to bind everything. only then did it make patties that wouldn't have fallen through the broiler rack. alternatively, you could substitute tahini instead of the egg (and leave out the sesame seeds) if you want to keep it vegan. i also needed to add a bit more salt & cumin than it called for, but that may be just personal preference. so, with these adjustments, i'll definitely be making these again!
