Simple, budget-friendly, protein-packed pantry staple chickpea and beet burgers which only require 6 ingredients, and that taste amazing :)
Hello my beautiful friends,
I had this recipe ready for quite some time already, and I just could never find the time to bring it to you. It’s not a fancy recipe, it tastes amazing – that I can assure you of – but the ingredients are so basic (all pantry staples) that I thought it would look a bit underwhelming in the culinary blogging world.
But then the Coronavirus outbreak arrived like a tornado in our lives, and now all the requests I get from you guys, are actually simple, cheap recipes that can feed a whole family with basic pantry staples. So this might actually be the perfect recipe in this moment.
This simple recipe is…
❥ protein-packed, thanks to the chickpeas (cook dried from scratch or use canned);
❥ has fibers, folate and vitamin C thanks to the versatile beets (don’t we all have one packet of those long life pre-boiled beets in the fridge? that we don’t really know what do with? now’s their chance to shine);
❥ it also has minerals and antioxidants thanks to the oats;
❥ can be cooked in a pan, in the oven or in the air-fryer (like I did here, we love the Instant Pot Air Fryer!);
❥ finally, it can be served with or without a bun, with a salad, fries or any other canned/frozen veggies you might have at hand – to make a complete meal.
This means making a fun burger-night dinner for you and your kids to endure the Coronavirus outbreak!
We’ve been having these burgers on repeat. They are so easy to make, they require only 6 ingredients, 5 minutes to prep and a food processor, and they can be pan fried or air-fried for two different but equally palatable culinary experiences.
