Author's Notes

--These burgers can be baked, just place them on a baking sheet and bake them at 350 degrees F (180 C) for 10 minutes or until golden, or grill them with a little oil at your next barbeque. --They go well with any condiments, so go crazy and add all your favorite healthy toppings!

Directions

Step 1
In a blender or food processor, place the Chickpeas (1 can) , Canned Red Kidney Beans (1 3/4 cups) , Kale (1 cup) , Paprika (1 tsp) , Cayenne Pepper (1/4 tsp) , Ground Cumin (1 tsp) , Lemon (1) , All-Purpose Flour (3 Tbsp) , Sea Salt (to taste) , and Sesame Oil (2 Tbsp) and pulse until combined, but not smooth. You want some texture.
Step 2
On a lightly floured surface, divide the mixture into 4 equal pieces and shape them with your hands into round patties, about 2 centimeters thick. Pop them on a plate and place them in the fridge for 10 minutes to firm up.
Step 3
In a large frying pan, heat more sesame oil. Fry the patties for 2 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Step 4
In a medium bowl, combine Greek Yogurt (3 Tbsp) , Tahini (1/2 Tbsp) , Honey (1/2 Tbsp) , Paprika (1/2 tsp) , Sea Salt and Pepper (to taste) . Mix well.
Step 5
Place a nice dollop of the tahini sauce on the base of each of the Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns (4) and spread to the edges.
Step 6
Top with the burgers, Sun-Dried Tomatoes (1/2 cup) , Red Bell Peppers (1/4 cup) , a few pieces of Lettuce (1 head) , another dollop of sauce if you like, and then the bun tops.
