  1. Toast pecans or walnuts in a large pan on medium-high heat for a few minutes. Set aside.
  2. Add oil onto the same pan and add onions. Cook for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add garlic and carrots and cook until carrots begin to soften. Add the mixture into the blender or food processor once done.
  4. Also add the nuts, chickpeas, thyme, smoked paprika, soy sauce, and barbecue sauce.
  5. Blend evenly until chickpeas are mostly mashed and mixture has come together (keep some chunks!).
  6. Form into burger patties and optionally, you can wrap them up individually and store them in the fridge to allow them to firm up for about an hour (or just to cook them up later).
  7. You can cook them right away by adding some oil onto a pan on medium-high heat and cooking the patties for around 3-4 minutes on each side or cooked until desired.
