    Hey Amber! I am moving to Kansas City this fall and I am looking for some restaraunts/ grocery stores that offer veganish options. I try like hell to be vegan but it is so hard going out to eat! I went to a Mexican restaraunt last night and ordered black beans and corn tortillas with avocado and pico de gallo. I could tell right off the bat the beans had been cooked in pork fat and everything was covered in cheese. No fair! I hadn’t broken my streak in weeks! Sincerely, Piper

    It’s stupendously hard to find fancy chili powders like ancho and chipotle in Canberra (Australia, really), but I’m thinking smoked paprika could work well?

    And, um, pesto muffins? Pretty please with a cherry on top? 😀

    Yum! I’ve made black bean burgers before, but never chickpea ones. I’ll have to give these a try! Thanks for sharing the recipe! 🙂

    This look wonderful! I actually wanted to jump up and make them right now! Ha! I think I had told you about the “veggie burgers” I made with chickpeas that didn’t have much flavor. Yours look like they would have a lot more flavor! I’ll let you know what I think when I get a chance to make them!

    love the cookies from the last post and also rick’s restaurants in chicago..how fun! I used to live in chicago (downtown) and had the best time going out to amazing places..what a fun trip for you!

    Chickpea burgers are a great idea! I love this recipe, it seems like yours have a lot of flavor and texture to them!

    Hehe….that’s funny, because I made black bean burgers last night! Just about to post it, really. These look very good, and I’m loving the idea of chana masala burgers.

    That sounds great! I think the only dish I ever use Chick Peas in is Chili, time to try something new. Thanks.

    Piper—Ooh, you’re moving to KC?! I hope you love it! Despite our status as the BBQ capital of the world, there are plenty of options here for veg eating-out. I don’t even know where to start. Genghis Khan, Eden Alley, Füd, a plethora of Indian and Thai places, GREAT Mexican, so much more. If you see this, please feel free to email me at amber4d@gmail.com, and we can chat all about it!

    Hannah—Hmm, sounds like I’ll need to include a good chili powder in our bloggy swap, no? In the meantime, I think smoked paprika would be lovely.
    The pesto muffins didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped, honestly, so it’ll take some tweaking before I can share it. But I’ll try to experiment with the recipe some more this summer when the good tomatoes hit the markets :]

    Aimee, Rachel, Lynsey, Linda—Thanks! Please let me know if you try them, and how you like them!

    Averie—I love Chicago! That’s so cool that you used to live downtown there.

    Hillary—I like the look of those black bean burgers, and your homemade ketchup! A chana masala burger does sound like an intriguing proposition, doesn’t it?

    Amber, I really like the look of this burger.Thanks a lot!

    Can I use fresh chickpeas instead of tinned for this recipe? And can I add chickpea flour instead of bread so as to make it gluten free?

    Deep fried Falafel(patty made from ground chickpeas) are often sold in friteries here in Belgium.

    As I am only home in the evening, as a vegetarian ,I rely heavily on packed meals that don’t need (microwave)warming up.

    Can you freeze the patties? Thanks!
