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 tbsp oil
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.
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.
Serve with your favourite buns and toppings, or refrigerate/freeze for later meals.
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.
