Total time
Recipe type: weeknight meal, burger
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas (or 1 – 14oz can)
  • ½ cup onion, diced into small pieces
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp oil
  1. Combine all ingredients, except oil, 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.
  2. With wet hands, shape into patties, and let rest about 10 minutes. Heat 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.
  3. Serve with your favourite buns and toppings, or refrigerate/freeze for later meals.
  4. We’ve served our burger on a multigrain bun and topped it with lettuce, tomato, pickle, ketchup, and mustard!

Serve this Easy Chickpea Burger with a side of coleslaw or a veggie tray.
