Spinach Curry Chickpea Burgers

Spinach Curry Chickpea Burger


How is everyone today?  We had another let’s say smaller Hurricane on Sunday…Strong gusty winds, rain, rain, rain.  Today is a beautiful sunny day. 🙂 (so far)  When I was done with work around noon, I went for a nice long walk with Charlie. But It is a sunny day and oh my gosh it is so cold!  I do love it when it is sunny and cold, the air feels so refreshing. 

I have been tutoring for over a year and I have met some really fabulous people.  Mrs. Jadwiga is one of the fab people.  I have been working with Mrs. Jadwiga for a couple of months and what is there to say about this gentle human being.  I am going to put my Mom into this because they both are the kind of woman that inspires you to go after your dreams! I can’t say much but I think my previous sentence says it all.  So, I am dedicating this recipe to Jadwiga because she is always ready for a new challenge and my mom just because she’s my mom. 🙂

I know this is not a Greek recipe but come on Chickpeas, Spinach and Curry…sorry but that is definitely a must-try combination for me.  I love Curry, but unfortunately, I don’t always have the opportunity to use this deliciously unique spice in my Greek recipes.  But when I do come across one that I can I go for it!!.  

I omitted and added a few ingredients that I love and kind of made it my own. So, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 🙂  I left the Chickpeas to drain the excess water overnight.   I added dill and leek instead of onions and parsley,  so this definitely was a game-changer.
