Pico de Gallo

  • 3 Roma tomatoes diced
  • 1 onion small, diced
  • 1 jalapeno cored, seeded and diced
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • ¼ tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 dash sugar


  1. To make the "burgers": In a food processor, place beans, onion, garlic, cilantro and jalapeno. Pulse a few times until you have a thick dough-like texture. Add in the cumin, chili powder, allspice, egg,(aquafaba) and chickpea flour and pulse again until well mixed, but you want to have a chunky texture, not a puree. Place mixture in a bowl and chill for about 20 minutes.
  2. Shape into 4 patties. Place the patties on a place and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes to allow them to firm up. ( Resting time.)

  3. While the patties are resting make the pico de gallo. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  4. Once the patties are firm and ready, remove them from the refrigerator. Heat olive oil ( enough to cover the bottom of the pan) in a non-stick skillet and quickly pan fry for about 5 minutes on each side.

  5. Serve on a bun or greens and top with pico de gallo.
