I’ve been attempting to live at the time, dial back and appreciate precisely where I’m at the present moment. Yet, I gotta say, at times Hawaii simply sounds so great. In any case, for the time being, I will invest a lot of energy absorbing sun in my own terrace and like the entire summer.

You’ll want to start by making your flax egg and giving it time to sit so that it has a chance to gelatinize. This step is so important because it’s going to hold your chickpea veggie burger together. While that sits, add your veggies to a skillet and sautee for about 5 minutes until they start to soften.

Let the veggies cool slightly, then add them to a food processor along with chickpeas, cilantro, lemon juice and all of your spices and pulse just to chop everything up, but don’t go so far that it starts to make a paste. Once everything is starting to come together, add your oat flower and pulse to combine. Next the flax egg goes in, then give it another few pulses.

Finally, all that’s left to do is bake your chickpea burgers! Pop them on a baking sheet and then let them go for 40 minutes, flipping halfway through. Meanwhile grill up your pineapple, chop your toppings and get ready to enjoy some delicious Hawaiian veggie burgers!

NOTES

  • You don’t have to sauté the vegetables, but I feel it brings out their flavors more. If you don’t want to sauté them, simply throw them in the food processor raw.
