Veggie Burger

When I was gazing at Anudivya's cutlet recipe,I said to myself why not make a whole meal with it ,by making hearty patties for burger. With hummus and baby spinach this is an all nutritious low fat burger to devour.Thanks anudivya for yet another figure-friendly recipe:)
4 Burger Buns
For Patties
2 cups cooked chick peas
1 small potato baked or boiled,Peeled and smashed.
1 medium carrot or 4 baby carrots ,boiled and mashed ,you could add more vegetables like peas,peppers or broccoli boiled\steamed and mashed.
1/2 teaspoon black pepper or chilly powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon each of cumin and coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup store bought bread crumbs or 1 whole wheat bread slice ,processed to crumbs.
1 Tablespoon of Olive oil.
For Topping
1/2 a cup Hummus,same as in this recipe
10-15 baby spinach leaves

Make the Patties
Process the chick peas using a food processor or blender. Do not use any water,blend until nicely mashed.Transfer in a bowl,mix with the other mashed vegetables along with the spices and bread crumbs. Without bread crumbs patties are likely to break, so use any kind fresh or store bought.Shape in to patties about the size of the buns ,makes about 4 medium 1 inch thick patties .
Heat a non-stick pan and lightly grease with olive oil, roast the patties on both sides just until crust is lightly crisp.
Assemble the Burger
Toast the burger buns and lay the patty,top with a tablespoon of hummus and spinach leaves and serve.

Hey that burger is very tempting!
Yasmeen do you make the Tahini sauce in Hummus yourself or purchase it?
Do share your recipe for Tahini sauce if you have one. I liked the green chilly addition in the Hummus..tht was a novel idea.
