Ingredients

  • 1/2 (cup) finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 (cup) unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1 (cup) canned chickpeas, drained
  • 1 diced red onion
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 (tablespoon) chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 (teaspoon) fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 (tablespoon) italian seasoning blend
  • 2 (tablespoon) olive oil
  • 2 (slice) mild Cheddar cheese
  • 1 pita bread round
  • 1/4 (cup) prepared Ranch dressing
  • 2 (leaves) romaine lettuce
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 avocado - peeled, pitted and sliced

Directions

  1. Place walnuts and sunflower seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until lightly toasted and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash garbanzo beans with a fork, or chop in a food processor. Stir in the onion, egg, parsley, and toasted nuts. Season with pepper and seasoning blend, and mix well.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Divide the bean mixture into 2 patties, and fry in the hot oil for about 3 minutes on each side, or until well browned and heated through. Place a slice of cheese over each patty, and remove from heat.
  4. Place the pita round in the same dry skillet the nuts were in, and heat for about 1 minute on each side. Cut the round in half, spread ranch dressing inside of each, and line the pockets with romaine leaves. Place a cheesy patty into each one, and top with sliced tomato and avocado. Serve with tortilla or potato chips.

    They're not perfect, I still haven't managed to make them burger consistency, but when I used it like it was just ground meat, and piled it on a "fold-a-pita" it was AMAZING...

    Really delicious! I added another egg to help them stay together better.
