From the Test Kitchen

In this delicious spin on the veggie burger, we’re combining smashed chickpeas with garlic, onion, Parmesan and vadouvan curry powder to make tasty, hearty patties. Vadouvan, an Indian-inspired French spice blend, combines the flavors of aromatics like garlic and shallot with a kick of masala. You’ll also roast the carrots with the vadouvan, then brighten them up with lemon. And as a cooling, finishing touch, you’ll top the chickpea burgers with cucumber slices and feta-yogurt sauce.
