Spicy Vegan Burgers + Tex Mex burger sauce

We survived day 1 of the Vegan Challenge! Last night, we had my siblings over for a sleepover and I made vegan burgers with fries. Everybody loved them, although he did drown his in Ketchup. They were so flavourful and filling, I can't wait to make them again

Burgers (makes 8)

1 can of chickpeas
1 can of white kidney beans
1 medium onion (diced) 
1/2 cup of canned corn
2 tsp paprika 
2 tbsp pickled jalopenos ( chopped) 
1 tsp chili flakes
1/4 cup of flour 
salt and pepper 

1. Mash the chickpeas and white kidney beans in a large bowl with hands - its ok if some are left whole, they'll add texture. 
2. Mix in every other ingredient and blend with hands until it forms a dough, form 8 patties with hands
3. Fry over medium-high heat in some olive oil . Flip once golden brown (they actually really hold their shape!) 

Tex-Mex Burger Sauce 

1 cup sunflower seeds ( peeled)
2 tsp paprika
2 tbsp pickled jalopenos 
4 tbsp pickled jalopeno marinade
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cold water 

1. Boil the sunflower seeds in water for 15 minutes, drain
2. Blend all ingredients in a food processor, add water gradually to reach desired consistency. 

We served our burgers with guacamole, tomatoes and mixed greens. Bon Appetit
