I thought these burgers were great. I didn't find them bland, I just added a little bit more salt. Before I cooked them, I put the mixture in the freezer a bit and wet my hands before forming them and that helped a lot. When I made the sauce I used Greek plain non-fat yogurt and I added a bit more lemon juice. Overall a great meal! And my dad even liked them who would never consider something vegetarian.
Chickpea Burgers & Tahini Sauce
Rather than a heavy, fried falafel, here's an updated version of this pocket sandwich: a light chickpea patty served in a whole-wheat pita with a flavorful but light tahini sauce.

I thought these burgers were great! Super easy to make and not many ingredients. I love the flavor the scallions gave it. When I ate mine, I put dill pickles on it to give it some more crunch and it was really good. I will definitely be making these again very soon.
This recipe is a good starting point. I added grated garlic, finely chopped bell pepper, and smoked paprika. Enjoyed the flavor. The texture was a little smoother than I was hoping for. Would have liked a little more bit.
Easy to make, mine stayed together fine. Although I did not have a food processor, I just used a potato masher and a wooden spoon, so that might have had something to do with it. I skipped the scallions and oregano but added about 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and cayenne pepper along with a bit of fresh ground pepper. I couldn't be bothered making a sauce so instead used a Greek yogurt and cucumber sauce I found at the grocery store. I put the patty in a whole wheat pita with some lettuce and topped it with the sauce. I served it with a side of semolina and fresh beet salad. It tasted great! I will definitely make this again.
really liked this recipe. luckily for me i tasted the burger mix before i fried it and found it bland so added some old el paso spice mix and stuffing mix i had at hand. the tahini dip tasted a bit odd at first so had to add a bit more lemon juice and pepper. once the burgers are tasted with the tahini sauce they were both fine and tasted great together! would definitely make this again.
