Quebec Inspired Smoky Maple Chickpea Burger
Recipe created in the context of an Instagram partnership with Giant Tiger.
Something that I love about the summer season is the abundance of fresh, seasonal, and local fruits and vegetables!
These few warm months are a godsend, especially since eastern Canada is well known for (almost) eternal winters.
With this burger, I wanted to celebrate the flavors of Quebec, the province in which I’ve lived for the past 21 years of my life.
The patty itself is the true star of this burger: earthy and filling, it is made with nourishing chickpeas and brown rice. It is also flavored with sweet maple bbq sauce, smoked paprika, spicy chili flakes, savory tamari, and minced dried onion. The flavors of the patty are then enhanced by the caramelized mushrooms and the added fresh veggies.
You can enjoy it on its own or with a side of roasted potatoes.
Tip: I love to coat my potato wedges in Montreal’s classic steak seasoning (plant based of course!) and some oil before baking at 400ºF until golden and crispy to perfection.
If you do give this Quebec Inspired Smoky Maple Vegan Burger a try (whether it be during the holidays or not!) and share about it on Instagram, make sure to tag me (@muriellebanackissa).
Have a wonderful week my friends!
