Easy Chickpea Burger Recipe
This delicious vegetarian burger is easy to make, and can be eaten fresh or made ahead and frozen in patties for quick weekday meals on the go.
- 2 cups cooked chickpeas (or 1 – 14oz can)
- 1/2 cup onion, cut into chunks
- 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.
