March 2, 2011

Thank you Cooking Light magazine for this incredible vegetarian recipe! This is one of those meals, that I swear I could eat every day. Serve these mini-burgers on toasted pita with lettuce and a big dollop of this KP original roasted red pepper sauce!

1  large red skin potato
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
1 can (15 oz.) chickpeas, rinsed, drained, and divided
1  Tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
3 Tablespoons mayo (olive oil based)
2 Tablespoons roasted red peppers in oil, drained and chopped
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
Juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
Dash cayenne pepper


  • Place potato in a saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil.
