Shop for this week's Dinner in Minutes

They're called burgers, but there's no need to put these meatless creations between the top and bottom of gluten-free or regular hamburger buns. The cumin seed and chickpea flour are simple additions that provide flavor and texture.

The flour is available in some organic markets and in many Indian markets (where it often is called gram flour). Or you can grind dried chickpeas in a food processor.

Serve with carrot sticks or baked sweet potato fries.
