A question about a recipe: Zucchini Quinoa Burgers

I have a question about the recipe "Zucchini Quinoa Burgers" from Gena Hamshaw. I don't care for chickpeas (at all, even with other flavors and generous amounts of herbs added) so I'm wondering, what bean can be substituted for them here? Thanks so much. ;o)

Perhaps cannellini beans would be a good choice. I tried this recipe myself and just as a forewarning, make sure you really get all the water out of the zucchini otherwise your burger patties will fall apart on you. But otherwise, with a little tomato, lettuce, and homemade tzaziki sauce it was excellent!

Thanks for the question! I would use cannellini beans or navy beans. Good luck!
