For vegans seeking a healthier and vegetable-based burger alternative that is equally as packed with protein, this homemade falafel patty burger by Vegan Richa might be an ideal alternative. The dish opts for Middle Eastern spices and tastes that is filled with chickpeas to keep the vegetarian meal filled with nutritious and sustaining ingredients.

The burger is entirely meat-free without the use of animal products thanks to a falafel patty and a dairy-free dressing made using tahini. The patty is filled with canned chickpeas, herbs, spices and breadcrumbs to help bind the beans into discs that hold their shape like meat would. The dish is then topped with a vegan dressing made of tahini, spices, lemon and garlic. Eaters can then dress the burger with their favorite fixings.
