  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • 3 tbsp Chosen Foods Coconut Oil Mayo
  • 2 tbsp cornmeal
  • 1 heaping tsp cumin
  • 1 heaping tsp turmeric
  • 1 heaping tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 heaping tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. To prepare the veggie burger, combine all the ingredients, except for the olive oil, in the food processor. Pulse 10 to 15 times, until the chickpeas are mashes and the ingredients are well combined
  3. Working with 1/4 cup mixture at a time, form 4 patties. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil on the parchment paper and arrange the burger on the baking sheet. Brush the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of oil on the burgers and bake for 42-45 minutes
  4. While the burgers cook, prepare the avocado tahini cream. Mash the avocado well in a bowl. Using a whisk, incorporate the tahini, lime juice and salt. Continue whisking until creamy. Refrigerate until ready to use
  5. Once the burgers are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly before removing them from the baking sheet (they are delicate, so do it gently!). Serve them warm with the avocado tahini cream, with or without a bun and your favorite fixings
  6. Let them cool slightly before removing them from the baking sheet
