Makes: 4 servings View Nutrition Facts


  • 2/3 cup  water
  • 1/3 cup  bulgur wheat
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 - 15 ounce can no-salt-added chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup  grated carrot
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons  ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon  ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon  plus pinch coarse salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons  olive oil
  • 1/2 cup  nonfat plain yogurt
  • 4 6-inch whole-wheat pitas, warmed


1. Bring water to a boil in a small pot. Add bulgur and simmer, partially covered, over medium heat 8 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Turn off heat, cover pot and let bulgur rest 5 minutes.

2. Pulse garlic in a food processor until minced; set aside 1/2 teaspoon. Add chickpeas to remaining garlic and puree. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and add carrot, scallions, cumin, cayenne pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Fluff bulgur with a fork and stir into chickpea mixture.

3. Shape 3/4 cup chickpea mixture into a 3/4-inch-thick patty; repeat with remaining chickpea mixture.

4. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook 3 minutes on each side, or until browned.

5. In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt with reserved garlic and pinch of salt. Split pitas open and fill each with 1 patty, 2 slices tomato, 2 slices cucumber and 2 tablespoons yogurt sauce.

Measuring the mixture by 3/4 cup only creates 3 patties, not 4 as the serving size says. And quite perfectly, so I didn't measure things wrong. Haven't cooked them yet but they smell delicious!
