  1. Drain (reserve the liquid, it’s your egg replacer) and rinse the garbanzo beans and place in a food processor. Add the garlic, lemon juice, oat flour, bread crumbs, tahini, bean juice, and salt and process for approximately 30 seconds or until you get a thick and sticky mixture. Divide into 2 and form the mixture into large patties.
  2. Refrigerate for an hour to allow them to set.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a medium iron skillet on medium-high heat. When the oil is hot add the burgers and cover. Sear for approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until they’re golden brown and heated through to the center.

  4. Double the recipe to make four large burgers.
