Chickpea Veggie Burgers
Prep: 20 mins/Cook: 45 mins
We LOVE veggie burgers, which means we’re always on the lookout for new, innovative recipes to add to our burger arsenal. It’s always a challenge to find something that has good texture (holds together well) and a high nutritional value to boot. These Chickpea Veggie Burgers have both, are out of this world delicious, the recipe is super easy to adapt, and there’s tons of room to explore and play with the flavour profile. Consider adding your favourite sauces, too! We may be biased, but we feel our Thai peanut sauce pairs incredible well with this burger for a terrifically tasty twist!
- 1 can of drained chickpeas
- 1 cup cooked rice (your choice what kind)
- 1/3 cup grated carrot
- 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
- 1/4 cup Schoolhouse GF breadcrumbs
- 1 beaten egg
- 2 tbsp tahini or peanut butter
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp dry mustard
- Oil for frying
The Steps to Take
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, using a potato masher, feverishly mash chickpeas coarsely. Stir in cooked rice, carrot, onion (add in raw or you can sauté until translucent in a small fry pan first), gf breadcrumbs, egg, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, salt, pepper and mustard.
Shape mixture into 3/4 inch thick patties.
Heat oil in a frying pan and fry patties over medium heat for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
Place patties onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.
