Yummy Vegetarian Chickpea and Zucchini Burgers

I’ve been wanting to make a veggie burger recipe for a while, and this week’s recipe screamed at me to go ahead and do these Vegetarian Chickpea and Zucchini Burgers.

My hubby nick-named this burger the “hummus” burger because of the chickpeas, but the seasoning is versatile, so you could make this taste however you want. I topped ours with a homemade herbaceous green goddess dressing, lettuce, and tomato on a whole wheat bun. I will make these again and didn’t miss the meat at all!
