Burger ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup dry couscous
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 15 ounce can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon sesame tahini
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

Tahini dressing ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup sesame tahini
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.

I did these first three steps simultaneously in order to speed up the prep time.

1. In a small pot, bring the water and couscous to a boil. Remove from heat immediately and allow the couscous to sit in the pot for 10 minutes, soaking up the water.

2. Steam the broccoli in a steamer for 5-7 minutes (or use a microwave or stove method, you just want the broccoli to be soft in the end)

3. In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat and add in the onion and scallions, stirring occasionally for 3-5 minutes until the onion softens. Remove from heat and stir in the cumin.
