About this recipe:These no nonsense nut burgers are great. I have yet to find a recipe or a restaurant that makes as good a version. Serve with chips... tortilla, blue corn, sweet potato, or other veggie chips. Use whichever types of nuts you like, or have handy such as pecans, walnut, hazelnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or any combination of nuts you might like."
1-2 beaten egg (some users find 1 not enough to hold mixture together)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper + salt as required
1 tablespoon herb seasoning blend
2 tablespoons olive oil

Mash the chick peas in a food processor. Stir in the onion, egg, parsley, and toasted nuts. Season with pepper and seasoning blend, and mix in well, but keep a nutty texture.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Divide the bean mixture into 2 patties, and fry in the hot oil for about 3 minutes on each side, or until well browned and heated through. Place a slice of cheese over each patty, and remove from heat.
