Directions

To prepare burgers:

Place chickpeas, scallions, egg, flour, oregano, cumin and ¼ teaspoon salt in a food processor.

Pulse, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides, until a coarse mixture forms that holds together when pressed.

(The mixture will be moist.) Form into 4 patties.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Add patties and cook until golden and beginning to crisp, 4 to 5 minutes.

Carefully flip and cook until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes more.

To prepare sauce and serve:

Meanwhile, combine yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, parsley and ¼ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.

Divide the patties among the pitas and serve with the sauce.
