For this recipe I used a can of chickpeas and to reduce the sodium (I am trying to keep it at a minimum) I rinsed my peas before using them in the recipe. And since I really enjoy the heat, I used Mrs. Dash extra spicy (a sodium substitute). In addition to keeping my sodium intake in check I am also watching my carbs. Since this recipe calls for panko I decided to forego bread and simply use romaine lettuce as my “bun.”
I topped my burger with tomato, avocado and some siracha (more spice!) and I literally inhaled it! My mom loved it too so it wasn’t just me. With mom’s stamp of approval I know I have a winner. I hope that this recipe is something you can enjoy with your family during Lent but also anytime you are looking for a nice addition to your meal rotation! All of my ingredients for this recipe were purchased at Walmart so this is certainly an extremely affordable meal too!
