In a food processor, add your chickpeas, garlic, onions, cayenne pepper (for some spice), lemon, thyme, cilantro (optional), sea salt & black pepper.
Pulse about 5 or 6 times until all ingredients are combined well.
Remove chickpea mixture from the food processor into a mixing bowl. Add ground flaxseed meal and mix well.
Put the mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour. This will allow all the flavors to meld and the texture to become firm.
Use hands to form the chickpea patties.
Add grapeseed oil to a frying pan. Once the oil is hot (2-3 minutes) add your chickpea burgers to the frying pan.
Cook for about 3-5 minutes on both sides until golden.
