Chickpea Feta Burgers bursting with cheese, earthy chickpeas, and oregano are a delicious meatless dinner option.

I am always up for a good veggie burger and this recipe packed with chickpeas and feta cheese doesn't disappoint. I mean anything with feta cheese tastes delicious in my opinion. This burger is especially delicious with a simple yogurt sauce. I make mine with nonfat plain Greek yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh dill, and a touch of garlic. So easy and the perfect creamy accompaniment to these burgers. Then pack everything into a burger bun with your favorite veggies and dinner is ready.

These burgers can also be made in advance and frozen for quick meals in the future. I like to freeze them individually and then pull them out and warm them in a pan so they stay nice and crispy. Then can be frozen raw or cooked, but I usually cook them so that if I need something really quick I can pop them in the microwave.
