I would make a giant batch of veggie burgers and freeze. Veggie burgers are really easy to make and you can use ingredients you like. I like to make them with about 50% cooked bulgar wheat, but you could probably use brown rice.

Then sautee other ingredients such a garlic, onion, bell peppers. Use whatever you like, but make them flavorful. Be sure to smash beans. You can use eggs and flour as a binder. Just use enough flour until they hold together. You could bake in oven, but I like to cook on stove in a couple tsps olive oil until crispy on each side.

Sorry I don't have exact recipe, but thats not how I cook.

That sounds good. I don't often keep to exact recipes either. I like to experiment, and I like try new things.

Bake them with a little salt over low heat until crispy, they make an awesome crunchy snack.

Chickpeas go great in any curry.   I have also added them to chili.
