Enjoy these vegan burgers on a sprouted-grain roll with chipotle mayo, pickles, organic ketchup, and avocado.

½ red bell pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
½ medium red or yellow onion, cut into chunks
2 cups baby spinach leaves
½ bunch cilantro
¾ cup cooked brown rice
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tsp. chili powder
2 Tbs. tomato paste
½ tsp. sea salt
1½–2 cups gluten-free bread crumbs
Extra virgin olive oil for browning

1. In food processor, purée pepper, onion, spinach, and cilantro until liquid. Scrape into a medium-sized bowl.

2. In food processor, purée brown rice and chickpeas together into a paste, then add to veggie mixture.

3. Add chili powder, tomato paste, and salt.

4. Stir together (best done with your hands) to make sure all ingredients are well-combined.

5. Add bread crumbs and combine until mixture sticks together. If the burgers feel too wet, add a touch more bread crumbs.

6. Form into patties and cook in a skillet with olive oil over medium heat, until browned on both sides.

Tip:Make a double batch, wrap each burger individually, and keep them in your freezer.
