vegan chickpea burger in a bun with vegetables

Chickpea Burgers

These vegan Chickpea Burgers are super easy to make, and seriously tasty! They're also low in calories, so work well as a light dinner (unless you want to slather them in onions, avocado, and vegan cheese, that is!).
Make it healthy: serve in large lettuce leaves with fresh veggies.
Make it dirty: serve it in a bun with vegan cheese and sweet potato fries.

  • Food processor


  • 400g tin of chickpeas
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 3 garlic cloves (sliced)
  • 60g fresh coriander
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 3 tbsp flour (use gluten-free if possible)

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and fry the onion and garlic over a medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • Drain the tin of chickpeas and add to a food processor with the cooked onions and garlic, paprika, cumin, coriander, and flour, and process it into a thick batter.
  • Sprinkle a little flour over a baking tray and cover hands with it, then scoop the batter out onto the tray and form it into balls with your hands, using the back of a spoon to press into a burger shape.
  • Place the baking tray with the burgers into the freezer, and freeze for 30-60 mins.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of oil to a frying pan and add all 4 burgers to the pan, cooking over a medium heat for 5 minutes on each side.
