Here is a video I made for VegNews, demonstrating a hearty vegan burger – the chickpea burger! It’s delicious and filling and can be served anyway you like. Nix the bread and serve over a grain, or you can form the burgers smaller and scoop the up and eat them with green leaves. Enjoy!

This recipe brings an earthy flavor to regular hummus and some sass to an ordinarily blah, [...]
Rainy days in the Middle East inspire a different kind of comfort. The comfort of garbanzo beans, of course. But chickpeas involving some deep flavors and, heck, a little bit of green to give the guise of having done something remotely healthy during a day inside. A day that starts with something as light as [...]
What’s not to like about hummus? It’s deeply satisfying, nutritious and an all-around crowd pleaser.
