Mmm…Chickpea Burger

Print Friendly

Mashed and pan-fried or baked chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, make a delicious veggie burger.

This recipe is for 4 burger patties and takes only 20 minutes to make.


  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1½ c onions, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 cup carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 can drained chickpeas
  • 1½ tbs tahini or peanut butter
  • ¼ c parsley, minced
  • 1/3 cup chick pea or ww flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • juice from ½ lemon


Heat 1 Tbs of oil and sauté the onions over medium heat, stirring frequently, until they soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, and carrot and sauté for two more minutes.

Transfer to large bowl or food processor and add the chickpeas. Mash or process until mushy. Stir in tahini and parsley.

Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in the small bowl, then stir into chickpeas.

Flour your hands, shape mixture into four patties, and dust them with flour.

Fry in 1 Tbs oil over medium-low heat for 1 minute, until just beginning to brown. Flip, fry 2 minutes, flip again, and fry 1 one minute (2 minutes total per side). Splash with a bit of lemon juice and serve. These are wonderful on sprouted grain bun or along with salad.

Enjoy ;-)
