Easy Chickpea Burger Recipe
Simple Weekday Plant-based Vegetarian Burger Recipe
This delicious plant-based chickpea burger is easy to make, and can be eaten fresh or made ahead and frozen in patties for quick weekday vegetarian meals on the go.
- 2 cups cooked chickpeas (or 1 – 14oz can)
- 1/2 cup onion, diced into small pieces
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1Tbsp chili powder (or play around and use a different spice mix!)
- salt and pepper
- 1 egg
Combine all ingredients in food processor, pulse until slightly chunky, add some liquid (water or milk is great) if needed, to have a moist but not wet mixture.
With wet hands, shape into patties, and let rest about 10 minutes. Heat a little oil in a frying pan, to medium, and cook the patties for about 5 minutes, until nicely browned. Then flip patties over, and repeat on other side. Serve with your favourite buns and toppings, or refrigerate/freeze for later meals. Makes 4 generous-sized burgers.
