Recipe: 1/3 cup dry couscous / 1 cup water / 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets / 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil / 1/2 cup chopped scallions / 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion / 2 teaspoons ground cumin / 1 15 ounce can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained / 1 tablespoon sesame tahini (see below) / 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring water and couscous to a boil. Remove from heat immediately and allow the couscous to sit in the pot for 10 minutes, soaking up the water. While the couscous sits, steam the broccoli in a steamer for 5-7 minutes.  In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add onion and scallions, stirring occasionally for 3-5 minutes until they soften. Remove the onions from the heat and stir in the cumin. Gather your couscous, broccoli, onion mix, chickpeas and 1 tablespoon sesame tahini. Combine together in a food processor. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the bread crumbs. Form it into patties and place the patties on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Bake for 50 minutes, turning the patties over halfway through. They are done when the tops begin to brown.

Tahini Dressing Ingredients: 1/3 cup sesame tahini / 1/3 cup water / 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice / 2 garlic cloves, chopped / 3/4 teaspoon sea salt. To make the tahini sauce, place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until combined, roughly 30 seconds. Top your burgers with tahini sauce, pickles, tomato and lettuce.
